Once a month, and twice a month in the winter, we travel to wherever people are staying and provide food, hot beverages, warm clothing, bus tickets, basic first-aid, survival needs, and information on services. We also provide food and basic veterinary care for our client's pets where possible. We think of ourselves as somewhat of a delivery service for our clients.

We meet for outreach on the second Saturday of every month between April and December and the second and fourth Saturdays of every month from January through March. Outreach runs from 6am until approximately 11:00am and volunteers need to be available to attend for the entire outreach unless they have made arrangements to leave earlier ahead of time.

Your time volunteering would be spent preparing food and supplies, loading vehicles, and driving/hiking the supplies directly to where our clients are living. While not required, we thrive on having a group of committed volunteers who are able to attend outreach on a consistent basis.

Volunteer Requirements:
-18+ years of age due to the sensitive nature of our work
- Able to hike long distances
- Able to lift up to 25 pounds
- Sturdy Boots
- Fluent in Spanish helpful, but not required
- Car helpful, but not required
- Experience working with the homeless helpful, but not required
- Sense of humor

Come and check us out. Grab a friend and come try on an Outreach and see if it fits. We look forward to seeing you!
