Welcome to Basic Needs Foundation, Inc.
Basic Needs Foundation, Inc. (B.N.F. ) is a nonprofit organization.
We provide food for working homeless people, who live in their vehicles with their children. We also provide pet food for homeless people’s pets. Their vehicles are their homes!
We find homes for pets, when their working homeless owners can no longer take care of them. Pets of the homeless are spayed and neutered.
Working but Homeless
Hardly all marginalized Americans are recent immigrants with poor English proficiency. Many are high school graduates or have been to college but can’t land a decent, permanent job.
Food and hunger are a lens through which we see what America has become: a country indifferent to the basic needs of its citizens, one that forces millions of them to rely on private charity that is inadequate, inefficient and frequently unavailable.
We provide canned food and ready-to-eat meals to working homeless families who live in their vehicles with their kids and pets.
We reduce the number of mouths that poor families have to feed by providing spaying & neutering via mobile clinics. The poor folks in the rural towns in Kern River Valley area, Kern County, California who have no mean to fix their intact pets.
Amazon will donate 0.5% to the price of your eligible Amazon Smile purchases to Basic Needs Foundation whenever you shop on AmazonSmile. Same products, same prices, same service.
Driven by home foreclosures, evictions and loss of jobs, many homeless families are seeking help. These people live in their vehicles with children and pets since they have no other alternative.
Our goal is reducing the number of mouths that poor families have to feed with their limited income by spaying & neutering their pets.
