Homeless Outreach

Shifts are on Fridays 8-9am, 9-11am or 1-3pm, depending on tasks

As Jesus encouraged us to serve the poor & disenfranchised in our communities, Solano desires to make homeless outreach a central part of our mission. Two years ago, we helped establish Albany's free shower program, which offers private showers, food, clothes, and toiletries for people experiencing homelessness. We are looking for occasional or regular volunteers to help with sandwich prep, sandwich distribution, or to be on the shower welcome team. Shifts are Fridays 8-9am, 9-11am, or 1-3pm depending on the task. For more details contact Evelyne St-Louis at evelyne.stl@gmail.com.
