Group Volunteering

Each year over 600 groups serve at St. Anthony Foundation. Groups come to us from companies, schools, organizations and religious institutions. Most groups who serve at St. Anthony Foundation participate in our Justice Education Service Program which pairs opportunities to learn about issues of poverty and homelessness  along with service. To schedule a group contact the Group Volunteer Coordinator, Erika Hapa, at or 415-592-2728.
