Distanced. Not Disconnected! Food Bank Assistant (The Dudley - SF)

Save to Favorites

Mercy Housing California

Distributions are held Fridays to help those in need access healthy food.
Volunteers are needed between 11:00 am - 2:00 pm.

We will practice safe social distance protocols, and we ask that all volunteers wear sturdy tennis shoes or boots and bring a mask and gloves.

In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, Mercy Housing has shifted our resident service priorities to focus on residents' immediate needs. Many of our residents are coping, like most Americans, with the stress of isolation, lost income and jobs, struggles to meet immediate food and household essential needs, school closures, and children needing to develop remote learning routines.

Food insecurity is one of the most pressing needs, and YOU can help us meet those needs while feeling connected to the community in a fulfilling way!


The Dudley Apartments is the adaptive reuse of a six-story 110 room hotel originally built-in 1913. In 1989, this building was significantly damaged by a major earthquake, and in 1996 it sustained a fire that displaced all of the residents. The Dudley Apartments has been retooled for permanent housing for low-income individuals and the formerly homeless and now includes 75 studio and one-bedroom units. A special project feature of the Dudley Apartments is the services that Hamilton Family Center provides.

About Mercy Housing California

Mission Statement

To create stable, vibrant and healthy communities by developing, financing and operating affordable, program-enriched housing for families, seniors and people with special needs who lack the economic resources to access quality, safe housing opportunities.

Description

Mercy Housing was founded in 1981 in response to the lack of stable, affordable housing for vulnerable populations. In working to fulfill our mission, Mercy Housing California has developed more than 154 affordable housing communities in 36 counties throughout California, providing 17,000+ homes and serving over 24,000 people in need.

Mercy's commitment to program-enriched housing distinguishes us from many other large scale affordable housing developers. Housing is foundational - everyone needs a home. But many people who have endured poverty and other challenges need an additional hand-up to create the lives they want for themselves and their families. Our dedicated staff and volunteers work with residents right in their homes and neighborhoods on issues like health and wellness, housing stability, financial security as well as provide a full range of enriching out-of-school time options for youth.
