    Every year we collect new backpacks and new school supplies for kids experiencing homelessness and foster youth in our local community. We need your support to make 2018 our best year yet! We are looking for volunteers who are interested in helping sort & pack backpacks or assist with data entry in July and August 2018.

Group Volunteer Opportunities

  • Birthday Parties

    Sponsoring a birthday party for the kids at our Family Shelter or our Mather Transitional Housing program is an incredible opportunity to create memories for the kids and families and help provide continuity, joy, and hope in otherwise unsettled and uncertain times. As a sponsor, you would provide the gifts, cupcakes/cake, goody bags, decorations, paper goods, and entertainment/games for the party.

  • Craft Nights

    The host for these nights can choose virtually any craft to teach the kids how to make. The possibilities are endless! You would provide enough craft supplies for 10 kids and teach them how to make it. Even coloring is very fun for them! Our craft nights are held on Mondays at 6-7pm at our Residential Family Shelter.

  • Senior Safe House Adopt-a-Meal

    Provide a meal for the residents: Bring a complete meal to the Senior Safe House(enough for 10 people)- either prepared or just the ingredients- and prepare it yourself at the House or leave for staff to prepare. (breakfast, lunch, or dinner)

  • Childcare at Mather Community Campus

    This includes caring for and host activities for children infant-14 years old at the families transitional housing program, as well as hosting games and activities with the kids. Times available are Monday-Friday anytime between 9am-5pm. Volunteers age 12-17 are welcome with their parent or adult guardian.
