Martha’s Village & Kitchen, one of the largest providers of homeless services in the Coachella Valley and Riverside County, began in 1990 when founders Gloria Gomez and Claudia Castorena started serving meals to their homeless neighbors in need. Today, from its campus in Indio, California, Martha's Village offers a unique life-changing program based on the nationally-recognized continuum of care model pioneered by Father Joe’s Villages. Martha’s Village addresses the underlying causes of homelessness, and challenges each resident to become a better person through Bridges to Independence — a groundbreaking approach to rehabilitation.

We offer a gateway to hope where people regain their lives to become responsible, self-sufficient, productive citizens and pass their newfound independence and life skills on to their children and families. We know that when we can change one person’s life, we can change generations of lives.


We envision a community where all people have the opportunity to live to their full potential; where everyone has food, housing, healthcare, education and the means to maintain them.

Compassion: Concern for others and a desire to assist
Respect: An act of giving particular attention or special regard
Empathy: Understanding, an awareness of and sensitivity to the feelings of others
Empowerment: Helping others to help themselves
Dignity: Counting all people worthy of our esteem

Serve our neighbors by responding to their needs with food, clothing, shelter and an opportunity to become self-sufficient by affirming their dignity with love, compassion and respect.
