Volunteer Opportunities

We, along with our community partners, are always looking for volunteers to help with events and special projects. Your time and care are equally beneficial as a financial donation.

Many people think of volunteering or giving back during the holiday season, but volunteers are needed year-round. 

If you have reservations about working directly with people experiencing homelessness, there are many additional volunteer needs outside of the typical serving food or helping in service centers.

2022 Point-In-Time (PIT) Count

The Sacramento CoC conducts a HUD-mandated unsheltered PIT Count every other year, which provides valuable data on the prevalence of unsheltered homelessness, as well as trends in subpopulation demographics such as veteran status, chronic homelessness, and transition age youth over time. 

We were able to complete a successful 2022 PIT Count with 500 volunteers who helped canvass over 130 zones and conduct over 500 household surveys across Sacramento. Check our PIT Count page for updates over the coming months!

Please email us with any questions. We sincerely appreciate your time and support!
