The Vendome Hotel 415 S Claremont St, San Mateo, CA94401 This historic building was renovated in 2009 to house 15 homeless men and women as part of the nonprofit Shelter Network…More of San Mateo County. It is pleasant and airy with IKEA-donated fixtures and furniture, regaining much of its original atmosphere as a respectable Edwardian-era hotel. Shelter Network facilities provide stable places from which homeless people with jobs can work, saving their money toward returning to permanent housing. Workshops and other counseling are offered on site and there is a live-in counselor. The Vendome is one of seven shelters operated by the Shelter Network.
