One of our primary focuses is to ensure that no one in our community goes to bed hungry.
Through food drives, community kitchens, and partnerships with local food banks, we provide nutritious meals to those in need. We believe that a full stomach is the first step toward a brighter future.
Bringing Communities Together
We firmly believe that when people come together, they can achieve amazing things. Our organization serves as a bridge that connects individuals, businesses, and organizations, fostering a sense of togetherness and shared purpose.
We have established volunteer-based community programs across Northern California to address ongoing local needs, promote civic engagement, and build a stronger, more connected community.
We also understand the importance of meaningful employment in people’s lives. That’s why we’re dedicated to workforce development initiatives that equip individuals with the skills, resources, and opportunities they need to secure stable jobs and build better lives for themselves and their families.
Our goal is to alleviate the various forms of oppression in society by developing unique programs that maximize impact, minimize cost, and bring everyone together in support.
We need your help to contribute to this goal and to reach as many communities as possible!

Help us on the Holidays!
Are you already planning your holidays? Is the family dinner menu ready? Are shopping lists mapped out?
Why not give a few hours of your time to others?
We have a special holiday schedule for the YANA Community Food Share. Support Life Foundation wants to help all families to be able to celebrate and enjoy the upcoming holiday season. This last mile food delivery will reach people during the middle of the week right before Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. We need extra hands to deliver the grocery packages to homes in the community.
