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

14th Annual Shelter from the Storm Breakfast

Our annual fundraising breakfast event will brought nearly 400 people for an hour of inspiration was in May 2018. They heared from 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.
