Satellite Affordable Housing Associates

SAHA Logo
In December 2012, Satellite Housing and Affordable Housing Associates merged to create SAHA, an organization dedicated to providing quality, service-enriched affordable housing to East Bay residents.

Enjoy giving back to your community? Want to help provide food for seniors in affordable housing? Help transport food from the Mercy Brown Bag Program and distribute it to our residents! This volunteer activity not only provides seniors with nutritious groceries, but it also provides a setting in which they can socialize and talk with you and their neighbors.

Volunteer would pick up 15 Grocery bags filled with food at The South Berkeley Senior Center and delivere to Shattuck Senior Homes at Shattuck Ave and Durant on the 1st and 3rd Friday of the month. Bags way about 15-10 pounds.

ABOUT SAHA: Satellite Affordable Housing Associates is committed to providing quality, service-enriched, affordable housing in the bay area. By providing consistent, volunteer-led programing, we hope to build community at each of our properties, while offering accessible, socialization alternatives. Our hope is to provide the necessary tools for our senior residents to age in place, and to provide exciting new opportunities for our residents to build community with their fellow residents. Visit sahahomes.org for more information!

ABOUT THE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM: The volunteer program is managed by the volunteer coordinator who will follow up to your opportunity inquiries about an application and interview. Please note that we are only able to accommodate 9am-5pm Mon-Fri availability. In the interest of providing consistent activities for our residents, we ask that activities occur on a regular schedule; monthly, weekly or bi-weekly preferred.
