Positively Impact Poverty and Homelessness Fund


Homelessness is a rapidly growing global crisis. Climate change, systemic racism and economic inequality are just a few factors exacerbating this displacement around the world. While this issue is daunting, great work is being done to house those affected and end the damage of this humanitarian crisis. This fund is supporting six organizations whose aim is to provide supportive and permanent housing for those affected by this pervasive issue. All contributions of $1 or more will be matched by the Cisco Foundation as part of your annual $25,000 employee match.

Covenant House California

Covenant House California is dedicated to serving all God's children, with absolute respect and unconditional love, to help youth experiencing homelessness, and to protect and safeguard all youth in need. We believe that no young person deserves to be homeless; that every young person in California deserves shelter, food, clothing, education… and most importantly, to be loved. And we believe that it is our responsibility, as a community, to ensure that young people are given the opportunities that they deserve to achieve their dreams.
