About Our Saviour Center

Location:

4368 Santa Anita Avenue, EL MONTE, CA 91731, US

Mission Statement

To provide love, hope and resources to our neighbors in need. The resources we provide include: medical clinic, emergency shelter, motel vouchers to homeless families, food bank, and youth services including after school learning and soccer programming. Our youth services are closed now due to COVID-19.

Description

Because of the variety of services we offer, we have a broad variety of volunteer needs. Our volunteer needs include recurring opportunities (for example, cleaning and straightening our free "clothes closet" monthly) or annual (for example, volunteering at our Turkey Giveaway in November). We also have volunteer opportunities that require hands-on help (for example, reading to children) or administrative help (for example, performing monthly bank reconciliations or creating social media content). Our volunteer opportunities can require as little as 1 hour a month or as much as 100 hours per year. It all depends on what the volunteer wants to do!
