Welcome to Association of Faith Communities
SafeSpaces Is Open
The SafeSpaces program allows folks who are living out of their vehicles a safe place to park with access to sanitary facilities and other amenities. We also offer program staff to help in planning the steps it will take to get into better housing.
We have spaces available in Santa Cruz and the Aptos area. Your vehicle needs run, be registered and insured, and you will need a driver's license. Families welcome.
If you are interested, please click the contact button and tell us your situation.
Since 2012, the AFC has been sponsoring a nightly transitional shelter at faith communities from Santa Cruz to Aptos. We are able to do so for about $11.00 a night per member because we depend upon donated space and volunteer cooks.
Socks. People need socks. Homeless folks go through them fast. SPIN has distributed over 30,000 socks at area shelters and food kitchens.
Every faith community is invited to join the AFC. Come help relieve the suffering that living without shelter causes. Be in fellowship with those who are struggling. Bring to your congregation a better understanding that we are all God's people. AFC needs cooks, food servers, planners, fundraisers, caring people to assist those without homes to a better life.
