Governor Gavin Newsom has called on all Californians to take part in a state-wide day of action to tackle homelessness. As a part of this effort we are asking nonprofits throughout the state to engage Californians in volunteer opportunities. Find a volunteer opportunity near you so that you can take action this March 31st. 

Homelessness is a national crisis, which demands all levels of government do more to address this emergency. California is making historic investments to combat homelessness and address its causes. We are challenging the public and private sectors to join in a comprehensive response. All Californians can help bring people off the street and into services in our communities.
