Winter Interfaith Shelter

 

The Winter Interfaith Shelter is sponsored by the San Francisco Interfaith Council and run by Episcopal Community Services. The Interfaith Shelter provides dinner, breakfast and a dry place to sleep for 60-100 homeless men during the coldest and wettest time of the year. Grace Cathedral cooperates with many other congregations in San Francisco in this important endeavor.

Upcoming Events

Sunday, October 30 – Winterfaith Shelter Walk
Help us support the shelter by joining the Grace Cathedral team in walking the 4.5 mile course at Lake Merced or by donating to or raising money for the team.

Winter Interfaith Shelter

Where is it?

The location where we cook and serve varies each year, but it is always in San Francisco.

When is it?

The Shelter will be open from Sunday, November 20, 2016 through Saturday, February 25, 2017.

How do I get involved?

Contact the Rev. Nina Pickerrell by email or phone: 415-749-6391, to learn more about opportunities to get involved. Every donation counts and together we can make a difference for the homeless on our streets.

Learn more about the walk and register today.

What time commitment is expected?

You can sign up for a single or several evenings. We cook, serve, then clean up. The window for serving is from about 5 pm – 7 pm, but this can vary based on where the shelter is held.

Are you a great cook?

Have you cooked for groups before? Coordinated small teams of volunteers?  We are especially looking for volunteers who can lead, or partner with someone to lead, one of the cooking teams. We will support you in being successful in this. If you would consider being a lead cook or a co-cook, please contact the Rev. Nina Pickerrell.
