Winter Shelter Breakfast Program
Leaders: Hanna Hart and Ben Bear and Gordon Sharafinski
Augment existing shelter opportunities for homeless men during the coldest and rainiest months of the year.
The San Francisco Interfaith Winter Shelter provides breakfast, dinner, and a safe overnight rest for homeless men each night. It is a collaboration between Episcopal Community Services, the San Francisco Interfaith Council, and the San Francisco Human Services Agency, which partner to operate the Interfaith Winter Shelter. For three months, up to 110 homeless men are hosted at four different congregations - First Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco, St. Boniface Parish, St. Mark's Lutheran Church and St. Mary's Cathedral. Each congregation takes turns hosting for a minimum of three weeks. Several other congregations and groups help serve meals as well.
Each morning during the program, from 5AM to 7:30 AM, we need a 6-person team to prepare and serve the breakfast and then to clean up after the meal.
Sign-up table will be located in the Gallery or TSK Room after the Sunday service for the next several weeks.
The First Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco (UUSF) is scheduled to be the host site from February 10 to February 29.
