About Pacheco/Mtz Homeless Outreach, now known as Contra Costa Homeless Outreach
Since 2004, Doug Stewart has made it his mission to do what he can to help solve the homeless crisis. What started out as just helping some in Pacheco has turned into a mission for Doug and he commits himself to getting out into the community six days a week, including weekends, to make a difference in the lives of the homeless and temporarily stranded.
Before long, it started taking large amounts of money to meet the needs of the growing homeless population. What started out being completely funded by Doug and his wife Bailey, soon exhausted their resources and it was time to look for help from concerned and caring people int he community. In 2011, with the help of Joe Tully, an attorney with his office on Main Street in downtown Martinez, the Pacheco/Mtz Homeless Outreach, Inc. was incorporated in the State of California and became a bonafide IRS 501 (C)(3) charitable organization.
In January of 2014, we added a "dba" name of Contra Costa Homeless Outreach to better reflect the that we serve the entire Contra Costa County.

As his police radio buzzed in the background, Stewart drove his SUV down Castro Street and spotted
four men walking toward the Amtrak station. Read More
