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.
CATS helps those most in need get off the street, achieve stability and establish permanent housing by providing compassionate, culturally sensitive services.
OUR ORGANIZATIONAL VISION We envision a San Francisco where everyone who has lost the ability to care for themselves is given the support they need to gain control of their own lives. There will be no homeless on the street, those with illness and addiction will be cared for, and everyone will be supported along a path toward permanent housing and self-sufficiency.
OUR GOALS At CATS, we strive to:
Extend a helping hand to every homeless person in the San Francisco who has lost the ability to care for him or herself.
Help the majority of our clients achieve stability and establish permanent housing.
Provide our clients with the best support possible through innovative, top notch programs that serve as a model to other care providers, extending our impact beyond our immediate community.

Staff is very professional, committed and focused, making the working relationship with the board very easy and productive.
