Volunteer With Us
All Hands on Deck at SJWC!
You are invited to join us immediately in serving women experiencing the struggles of homelessness as a Sister Jose Women’s Center Volunteer. Give us a hand with providing socially-distant, masked, yet caring services to our Guests to help with their daily survival needs. That’s where Volunteers come in, who are truly “Sisters Helping Sisters.”
All hands on deck! During your weekly shift, you will see dynamic and committed women from every walk of life and responsibility level – volunteers, custodians, and administrators – all leaning in to help the women who come to our doors. And we would love for you to join us! You might be passing out food, making hygiene bags, selecting clothing, answering the phone, monitoring the laundry room, serving supper, making soup – you will be trained in every aspect of delivering services to our Guests.
Sound compassionate? It is. Sound challenging? It is. Sound meaningful? It is. Weekly shifts begin at 8:30 am and end by 12:30 pm, Mondays through Saturdays.
Interested In Volunteering?

Masks are required to be worn by all volunteers while working within the Center.
