Frequently Asked Questions

Does the money you raise stay in the Valley?

Yes. All the contributions made to Martha’s Village stay in the Coachella Valley to help our local neighbors in need.

How much money goes to provide services?

Eighty-two cents of every dollar goes to Martha’s Village programs. See our Reports and Financial Statements page for more information.

What causes homelessness?

Different situations cause people to become homeless, including job loss, substance abuse, domestic violence and/or catastrophic medical bills. Something happens in a person’s life, financially, mentally, emotionally and/or physically, to cause them to temporarily lose their ability to care for themselves.

What do you do for residents?

Unlike most shelters, Martha’s Village provides residence, meals and educational programs, job training, children’s services, counseling, recovery services and an on-site medical clinic to help those in need regain their self-sufficiency.

How else does Martha's Village serve the community?

Martha’s Village serves an additional 300 to 500 local neighbors a day with access to a hot meal, our medical clinic, and emergency food packages from our pantry.

What is required of the residents?

Martha’s Village is a professional service center where residents must commit to following a structured program of classes, chores, and house rules. They must search for and obtain employment, and find reliable transportation and housing to continue to receive the services we provide and reach their goal of becoming self-sufficient.

Has there been an increase in people served?

Yes. Sadly, there has been an increase of 30-40 percent, especially for Emergency Assistance to non-residents (e.g. canned and dry goods, payment of utilities, clothing, etc.).

How is Martha’s Village managed?

The Administration of Martha’s Village consists of a local Board of Directors; a President & CEO; an Executive Vice President, a Sr. Director of Programs; a Sr. Director of Finance, and a Chief Administrative Officer. Dedicated managers and coordinators oversee each of our programs.
