Team Building Opportunities
By volunteering as a group, you are able to spend time together outside of the office, work together as a team, and make a real impact in the community where you live and work! Every volunteer shift begins with a Rally and Training so that we start the experience excited and well-equipped to provide care with dignity.
Project Homeless Connect hosts outreach walks through the Civic Center and Tenderloin neighborhoods 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!
We offer this opportunity to groups of 7 to 15 people every Third Friday of the Month from 9:00AM to 12:00PM. To sign-up, contact our Volunteer Coordinator!
Our Open House Outreach Walks are also available to groups of 6 or less every First Friday of the Month too. Register here!
Community Day of Service
At a Community Day of Service, an individual experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless is able to receive assistance from more than 100 providers under the same roof in a “one stop shop” model. Many of the services provided could not otherwise be accessed by a person experiencing homelessness.
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!
Each event has more than 20 volunteer areas, many made possible through the support of our Sponsors. While we guarantee your preferred shift, we depend upon everyone’s flexibility the day of to make the day as impactful as possible, and may need to disperse your group among different areas. If you would to ensure that you all stay together, consider Sponsoring the Area!
