Volunteer in Our Shelter

Save to Favorites

Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County

Located in one of the most distressed neighborhoods in Northern California, St. Vincent de Paul's West Oakland Direct Service Campus provides those most in need with the basic necessities for everyday life.

St. Vincent de Paul is currently the largest and only free shelter in Oakland. We are able to house 100 guests every night.

In the last two years the homeless population in Oakland grew by 44%. Now is the time to help those most in need in our city.

By volunteering in our shelter you can help your neighbors and build a stronger community.

Volunteers help set up the cots, prep food and assist with meal service.

We are open 7 days a week, and the shift is from 5-7:30pm.

If you have any questions, or would like more information please don't hesitate to ask!

Volunteers can submit an application online at www.svdp-alameda.org and/or contact us via email or phone:

We look forward to hearing from you and are so grateful for the donation of your time and for you support! We cannot provide the services that we do without the help of volunteers!
