Helping America's most vulnerable.

Shelter from the Storm Annual Breakfast, Bay Area

Please join us for the 2017 BAY AREA Shelter from the Storm Breakfast

Thursday November 2, 2017 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.

Our annual fundraising breakfast event is on November 2nd, 2017. Guests who join us hear from our individuals, children and families whose lives have been changed with help from Volunteers of America and supporters like you. Each of you is critical to our continued success. This year, Volunteers of America Northern California & Northern Nevada must raise $350,000 to close the gap between what we receive from government grants and what it costs to operate our programs in the Bay Area region.

Seating for the breakfast is by reservation only. Please contact Cynthia Shane Smith, regional development officer 510.325.1107 or csmith@voa-ncnn.org to RSVP

Together we can change lives by building a strong foundation that will last a lifetime.

While the backgrounds vary, what the former and current clients who took the stage at Shelter from the Storm shared is how the course of their stories changed for the better because of the intervention of the programs, the staff, and the supporters of Volunteers of America.
BELOW are their stories as they shared them as a voice for others...

A Voice for Others - Jeremiah Langston presentation

Jeremiah Langston, now a UC Davis graduate and a geography teacher, was formerly a client at the VOA-NCNN Transitional Housing for Former Foster Youth Program.

"I came to realize that VOA wasn't just a place where I stayed, but that the program inserted a sense of unique confidence and courage in me that I never knew I had. A kid that lived in 15 foster homes, a kid that no family wanted, a kid that was on the verge of homelessness now had made his success possible with Volunteers of America reminding me that I could do it every day."

A Voice for Others - Michelle Evangelista presentation

Michelle Evangelista, is a current student at the VOA-NCNN Mather Community Campus and a great leader.

"I can now tell my future employers that I am worthy to be hired. VOA gives individuals like me the opportunity and the tools to succeed but even more so they give me my passion. I am now a high school graduate. I am now a leader amongst my peers. I am now able to thank my God and the staff at VOA for giving me my self-esteem and my dignity back; and I will now do great things with my life. "
