St. Vincent de Paul's Women's Center

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County

Helping in the baby room

The St. Vincent de Paul West Oakland Women's Center provides direct assistance to women and children in need. It is a safe and welcoming environment where women can come in for a warm shower, to do their laundry, use the toilets and feel that they are in a safe and welcoming area.

We also provide a play area so their children are able to be in a safe and fun environment while their mother is able to take care of whatever it is she needs to do.

We provide hygiene products, feminine hygiene products, baby diapers, adult diapers, children's clothes and shoes, as well as adult clothes and shoes.

Volunteers will be asked to:
  • Greet clients as they enter the center.
  • Help to check-in clients.
  • Assist front desk with handing out towels, and hygiene items.
  • Assist with laundry services.
  • Replenish supplies.
  • Help to manage the baby room, where we give away children’s clothes, shoes and diapers.
SVdP welcomes students, ages 14 and older, to complete service hours in Downtown Oakland. Youth under the age of 18 will need a waiver of liability signed by a parent/guardian. Youth under the age of 16 will need an adult (someone who is 18 years or older) to accompany them the entire day of service. We love to have families volunteer together! We also accommodate small groups of students for high school service days.

Time: Shifts are available Tuesday - Saturday between 8:30am- 12:00pm and 12:30- 3pm.

If you're interested or would like to find out more about this opportunity please don't hesitate to ask! You can call 510-277-6435 or email Zachary Zwijacz at

As of August 9th 2021 the state of California is requiring that if you volunteer here, you must have your complete vaccination card. If you are not vaccinated but still want to volunteer, California mandates that you get tested for COVID seven days before volunteering and bring your negative test results with you once entering the site. We will be keeping a copy of everyone's vaccination cards for our records. Please feel free to email John Sterns with any questions or concerns.

Mission Statement

St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County is dedicated to serving the men, women and children of Alameda County.


A non-profit, community-based organization, St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County (SVdP) offers emergency and social safety net services to its neighbors, relying on a vast network of volunteers to carry out our mission. We operate a free dining room, thrift stores, an e-waste recycling program, men and women's drop-in centers, workforce and culinary training programs and much more. St. Vincent de Paul serves everyone regardless of origin, creed, or affiliation. Our staff and volunteers are a diverse and talented group, representing a wide range of experiences and perspectives.

St. Vincent de Paul was founded in 1833 by Frederic Ozanam, a 20-year-old student of the Sorbonne University in Paris, France. Similar groups began to form in Paris, then spread throughout France, and eventually throughout the world.

Volunteers, known as Vincentians, are united in an international society of charity by their spirit of poverty, humility, and sharing. St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County was founded in 1938, and has been serving the community of Oakland ever since.
