Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Project Homeless Connect. Volunteers are the backbone of our programming and we look forward to offering a meaningful and enjoyable experience. All of our volunteer opportunities are located within San Francisco. We hope you will join us!
Types of Volunteer Opportunities
To volunteer at our Community Day of Service events you can register on the Volunteer Portal, you will see available roles when they are posted for an upcoming event. You can learn more about Volunteer opportunities for Individuals here.
Volunteering at Upcoming Events
Project Homeless Connect hosts approximately three large-scale events annually. For a list of upcoming event dates, please visit our calendar. All volunteer shifts are posted on the Volunteer Portal six weeks prior to the event. If you do not see any volunteer shifts after creating a volunteer account on the portal, please check back periodically, or sign up to receive emails from PHC—we will let you know when volunteer registration opens. Please view our general training video for an onsite view of volunteering with PHC and tips for the day!
Other Events: We often have focused, mobile, or smaller-scale events that use volunteers, such as our monthly Shelter Connect or Vision events. Volunteer positions include line and list management, and helping with forms. To inquire, please email Volunteer@projecthomelessconnect.org with your name, contact info, availability, and types of roles you are interested in.
Project Homeless Connect hosts outreach walks through the Tenderloin to raise awareness about homeless services, distribute information about our programs, and engage with our neighbors experiencing homelessness. This is a great opportunity to connect directly with the individuals most in need of our services. Come and help us hand out socks and granola bars while passing along vital information about the services we offer!
Looking for a way to bring your unique talents to helping people experiencing homelessness? We are often looking for translators/interpreters, IT and web development, photography/videography, and more. We’d love to speak with you about partnering, please email Volunteer@projecthomelessconnect.org or call (415) 503-2123
