Please consider volunteering for one of our many areas in our weekly Community Household Products and Clothes Closet. Our volunteers are critical partners in helping us fulfill our mission of building healthy individuals and families in low income, under-represented, and disadvantaged communities and closing the gap on homelessness and food deprivation.

Outside The Walls (OTW) is committed to helping the less fortunate citizens of Sacramento. For over 5 years, the unselfish volunteers of OTW, have provided household products and clothes for over 9000 families annually. Our amazing volunteers are committed, dedicated and diligent in responding to the needs of our community and our city. In light of this recent catastrophic epidemic in our world, the need for assistance is rapidly increasing. We need your help!

Outside The Walls (OTW) Community closet and hunger relief efforts are comprised of two key components: 1) our household items and Clothes closet, which is open every Thursday to provide household items to insecure individuals in Sacramento County and surrounding areas. And 2) Our Caring Hands Homeless feed Partnership program which provides meals to the homeless monthly. Both our hunger (and shelter) relief efforts have contributed significantly to impact hunger in our Sacramento communities as follows:

In 2017, our community closet distributed over 2,800 household items, in Sacramento County, providing for approximately 200 individuals weekly (800 monthly and 9,600+ annually)

Since 2020, we have successfully provided an additional 680 distressed and food insecure individuals annually (a total of 2,040)

Our combined efforts have provided hunger relief to 11,640 individuals, this is Why "WE NEED YOUR HELP" !
