Jack Fuller

Founder & CEO

Hearts For Homeless was founded in early 2000 by Jack Fuller (Founder & CEO) and Renee Masterson (Co-Founder & Coordinator). Although Jack has a background in Pharmacy, his true passion was Tennis, so he began coaching Tennis in the Bay Area, San Francisco. Living and working in Silicone Valley, he was exposed to the stark, heart-breaking, disparity in wealth, where those experiencing homelessness are often just across the road from the ultra-wealthy.  This compelled him to found Hearts for Homeless. Initially, Hearts for Homeless was formed as an outreach program from Menlo Park Presbyterian Church that served those with immediate needs such as food, clothing, shelter, and fellowship in the Redwood City-Palo Alto corridor of San Mateo County.

 

Over the years, Hearts for Homeless grew into the independent Non-Profit Organization it is today. These experiences have enriched Jack's understanding of the needs of those experiencing homelessness and informed our current programs, allowing us to refine our approach to respond to the evolving needs of the community more effectively.

Jack continues to enjoy time with a few clients on the tennis court, but has dedicated the majority of his time to Hearts for Homeless.
