The Family Emergency Shelter Coalition (FESCO) is a non-profit organization in Hayward, California which aims to provide shelter, transitional housing and support services for families and children in Alameda County.
By 2006, FESCO claimed to provide 24 Shelter beds, as well as support services including hot meals and housing readiness activities.
The organization incorporated in 1986. Its main purpose was to keep families together during their homelessness period. After a restoration of two-story home, they started to begin serving homeless families in 1988 as a shelter which can accommodate 8-10 families at a time. After the first year, Fesco started to provide support services to homeless families.
