The chance to serve locally through local outreach will not only change the life of someone you help but change your life as well.
Foster the Bay
Foster the Bay is a coalition of churches committed to providing a loving home for every child in foster care. Every day in the Bay Area, children are removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. Due to a critical lack of foster families, many of these children are placed on waiting lists for homes. If every Bay Area church raises up one Foster Family with one team of Support Friends, there will be more than enough families to meet the need. Foster the Bay dreams of the day when there will be a waiting list of families rather than a list of children in need of a home.
Safe Harbor is a 90-bed homeless shelter for adult men and women located in South San Francisco. One Saturday a month, a group of volunteers gathers and brings food, cakes, and decorations to the shelter for a birthday celebration honoring those who have a birthday that month. They spend 2 hours serving food, playing bingo, and sharing the good news to the residents there.
