Homelessness

BAGS OF LOVE

Serve the disenfranchised community of San Francisco’s Tenderloin district in partnership with City Impact. Volunteers make sandwiches at CPCFoster City campus a couple of hours a month early Saturday morning and pack food. They then carpool to San Francisco and distribute the bags “door to door” with a City Impact leader at the residential hotel. Conversation and prayer offers the love of Jesus to each person. This is an excellent chance for families to serve together!

Minimum age requirement:

Eight years old and up for food and bag prep.

Eighteen years and up for going to San Francisco.

 

Team Leader: Julie Seuss

HYGIENE BAGS

Organize and package hygiene and personal care items into kits to be handed out at CPC ministries for Veterans, homeless and day laborers, once a month for a couple of hours.

 

Team Leader: Deborah Orler

 

STREET CHURCH

Serve at Street Church in Redwood City, where 50 to 60 guests from the homeless community are fed a hot, homemade dinner every month with a fifth Wednesday. We worship and socialize with our guests, one of our pastors gives a message, and we serve a meal. Volunteers are needed to cook in advance of the night we serve, be on-site for worship, socializing, and serving the meal.

 

Team Leader: Marilyn Stockdale Green

LIFE MOVES SHELTER NETWORK

CPC has a long partnership of supporting LifeMoves in breaking the cycle of homelessness with a proven model of outreach, shelters, and programs. CPC assists and encourages the staff and clients through collection drives, providing and sharing meals, as well as activities such as decorating, maintenance, and entertainment. We build relationships, lift spirits, and celebrate that God loves and values us all. There are a variety of ways and times you can make a difference as an individual, family, or group!

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY  

This ministry has weekly opportunities to serve at construction sites throughout San Mateo, San Francisco and Marin Counties. Shifts are 8 hours long, 8:30-4PM and can entail heavy lifting. Activities can vary depending on the stage of the build but volunteers need no experience to participate. Minimum age is 16. Non-construction opportunities are also available in other parts of the organization including homeownership development, where you would work directly with new, prospective and current homeowners.  Office support such as research and outreach can be done remotely.
