MISSION: To provide a temporary winter shelter that is safe and warm in a supportive, caring environment for individuals and families who are homeless.
HOW TO HELP: Volunteer to help provide a meal, stay overnight, or donate needed items for our guests staying in the parish hall. Breakdown volunteers needed: Sunday morning, January 19!
Working together with 115 faith communities in San Diego, we open our parish hall doors to homeless individuals and families for two weeks each winter. The Interfaith Shelter Network and the Community Resource Center run the program that allows qualified clients to stay in the program for up to 8 weeks. Since 1986 the St. James-St. Leo Community has provided over 300 people with a safe, warm place to sleep along with 3 meals/day. Volunteers also provide encouragement and stay overnight to lend support. We invite you to participate in this faith-based program that provides an opportunity for homeless individuals and families to move toward self-sufficiency.
