Sacramento Loaves & Fishes offers 16 programs and services to people who are not housed in the community. Loaves & Fishes recognizes the dignity and spiritual destiny of each person with the hope that through their attitude of radical love, they can nourish not just the physical needs of those who seek services, but also their human need for acceptance, respect, and friendship. A volunteer is needed to serve at Maryhouse, a daytime hospitality and resource center for homeless women and children, offering individual case management, assistance in securing emergency housing, mail services, and assistance in basic hygiene and food necessities. A second volunteer is needed to serve as the service center coordinator at Friendship Park, including visiting with the guests, assessing needs, distributing meal tickets, and coordinating access to survival supplies.
Mercy Volunteers promote social change with individuals and communities experiencing injustice. In the spirit of mutuality, volunteers cultivate mercy and justice by embracing compassionate service, social justice, spiritual growth, and a simple lifestyle in community. Mercy Volunteers receive housing, transportation, monthly stipends, and health insurance.
