El Niño Emergency Winter Shelter

The El Niño rain that’s coming down now has been forecast to stay for weeks to come. This means our neighbors living in poverty need our help now more than ever. That’s why we’ve decided to keep our Emergency Winter Shelter open through March 31. The shelter will be open from 6pm-6am and have 60 shelter beds each night, along with hot dinner, scarves, socks, hygiene kits, and breakfast.

We need your help to provide a safe place for our guests for the rest of winter:


We need 4 volunteers per shift.

Morning Shift ~ 5:00 am-7:00am
Assist with wake-up process, help set-up, serve and clean breakfast, and assist with clean-up.

Evening Shift ~ 5:30 pm -8:00 pm
Help set shelter up, assist with intake, distribute blankets and other items as available, help prep, serve and clean for dinner.

We need $100,000 to run our shelter
this winter.

To provide the services necessary for our shelter, we rely on the support of our community. You can provide a bed, a meal, and a safe place from the storms for San Franciscans who need it the most.

$25 will support 1 person in our shelter per night.

$1,000 will support 60 people in our shelter per night.
