Anything from working outside doing yard work, to keeping the grounds clean and free of debris. Or you may be working inside helping to mop the halls or reorganize one of our many storage areas. We even have volunteers who come and read to the kids or do a craft with them. (all while adhering to the CDC guidelines.

Mission Statement

With support from our community, Stockton Shelter for the Homeless compassionately addresses the needs of homeless individuals and families by providing safe shelter, basic necessities and a structured opportunity to regain self-sufficiency.

Description

Stockton Shelter for the Homeless was founded in 1986 by a group of philanthropic business and government professionals to address the issue of homelessness in San Joaquin County. They recognized the need for a non-denominational emergency shelter in the Stockton community, and felt compelled to act. The original shelter opened its doors in December of 1987 and has operated daily since that time. Initially focusing on shelter for single men, our services quickly expanded to meet the needs of the entire homeless community, including shelter for families, case management and referrals, meal service and transitional housing programs. In 1989, Stockton Shelter for the Homeless took over operation of a shelter for families that was in danger of closing its doors. Eventually it became clear that we could better serve our mission by locating our facilities at a single campus. In 1993 the Family Shelter was moved to a brand new facility adjacent to the original shelter, now known as the Men’s Shelter. That same year we also opened a Day Shelter for single men needing a place to stay off the streets during the day. Today Stockton Shelter for the Homeless continues to operate a day and night shelter for single men, a separate shelter for women, families and transitional housing for homeless veterans and people living with HIV/AIDS. We provide dozens of other services for the homeless of our community everyday.
