How Does It Work?

BurlPres has been the lead host church for Home and Hope for over 20 years. This program is the “last resort” for families on the edge of homelessness in San Mateo County. It offers each of us a compelling way to reach out in love to serve those less fortunate. Please consider stepping out in faith to serve. Those who have done so for years always feel they receive more than they give.
