Helping America's most vulnerable.

Employment Changes Lives Forever

Shelter from the Storm event to celebrate those that have built a new future thru employment & housing

13th Annual Shelter from the Storm Breakfast

Our annual fundraising breakfast event on May 18, 2017 had nearly 400 people attend! They heard 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 $1.8 million to close the gap between what we receive from government grants and what it costs to operate our 52 programs across our large region.

THANK YOU to those that attended! And THANK YOU to our partners in success that sponsored the event. If you did not attend you can STILL JOIN the Shelter from the Storm mission - YOU are the best ambassadors for our organization.

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. "
