The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Cityteam is a nondenominational Christian nonprofit compassionately serving the poor, the homeless, and the lost in San Jose, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Oakland, Portland, and around the world.
Cityteam San Francisco is located in the heart of the Tenderloin, and is one of the only shelters, feeding and recovery programs south of Market. Volunteers and donors often tell me that they didn’t realize how much Cityteam does to help homeless people on the streets, the elderly that live in SROs and those suffering from addiction.
Yes, San Francisco’s homeless crisis and lack of affordable housing is at an all-time high, but we have a BIG God and nothing is impossible with Him. We have been blessed to witness countless lives changed. We are grateful to local partners, donors and volunteers that have a heart for serving those in need with dignity and grace.
