This page is dedicated to all individuals and organizations that work to assist the homeless. I affectionately refer to them as “Angels of the Homeless”. The goal is to provide them recognition and to provide their contact info in the event you would like more information or would like to contribute to their work. Currently, I have only listed individuals or organizations that I have personal experience with.
If you would like to nominate a person or organization please fill out the form below. Please include your name, email address, why you believe they are an “Angels of the Homeless”, and their contact info and URL if appropriate. Once reviewed their name and contact information will be added to the list of “Angels of the Homeless” with you as their Sponsor.
Tiny Houses For Humanity : is a project that came together by incorporating a Housing First approach to those needing assistance due to Sonoma County’s housing shortage and lack of affordable housing. Jay Shafer’s architectural genius as pioneer of the Tiny House Movement combined with River King’s vision for creating Tiny House Villages for those suffering homelessness has birthed an activist group. We are devoted to creating intelligent and functional living spaces that will allow residents the comfort and safety we all deserve.

Sonoma Valley Pet Clinic : Beth Ann Palermo and her staff are extraordinarily caring and compassionate. Through donations to her “Angel Fund”, Beth Ann and her staff provide free or low cost veterinary services to animals in need. She has generously treated three of the homeless dogs pictured in My “Homeless Companions” Gallery including “Elvis”. For more information or to donate please call: (707) 938- 8198.
COTS:“Committee On The Shelterless”, in Petaluma, is a model organization that not only provides food and temporary shelter but also the structure, support and education to assist the homeless in rebuilding their lives. I urge you to visit their website or schedule a tour of the Mary Isaak Center.
Kathy Bishop: Kathy, my sister-in-law from Illinois, has been scouring eBay and garage sales for rain gear ever since she heard about my homeless project. She has used her own money to purchase over 3 dozen jackets for my homeless friends. Thanks Sis.
