Volunteer with us at Project Homeless Connect


How many times have you passed by a homeless person and felt like you wanted to help but instead ignored them? Project Homeless Connect is breaking the myth that people do not seek assistance and services and would simply prefer to be on the street. Data proves that when people are approached in a respectful and kind manner, and with available and appropriate resources, they are eager to accept help towards self-sufficiency. It is estimated that between 6,000 and 12,000 people are homeless in San Francisco. Join Bay Area Jewish Community volunteers in supporting lasting solutions for these individuals in need. 2nd Annual Jewish Volunteer Day @ Project Homeless Connect
