Puente de la Costa Sur

Puente is the only community resource center for the South Coast. The individuals and families served by Puente face wide-ranging challenges that are often compounded by the isolation that stems from living in rural communities, language barriers, and difficulties with negotiating a new cultural and social landscape. After nearly a decade of operation, in 2007 Puente de la Costa Sur and North Street Community Resource Center merged to create Puente Resource Center. The goal of the merger was to provide a “one-stop” family resource and community center for a more convenient and efficient approach to bring a wider range of services to the communities it serves. In the summer of 2009, Puente was designated as San Mateo County’s eighth “Core Service,” providing basic emergency and support services including food, transportation, shelter referrals, housing assistance, and client advocacy to the South Coast. In addition, Puente provides an array of health, literacy, and education services.
