Volunteer Opportunities

Your in-kind donation are equally valuable as any monetary gift in support of creating an equitable community where everyone has a safe place to call home.

In our role as the lead agency for the Sacramento Continuum of Care (CoC), we collaborate with various community partners who provide direct services and look for individuals or groups interested in volunteering regularly or for seasonal special projects. If you have reservations about working directly with people experiencing homelessness, there are many additional volunteer needs outside of serving food or helping in service centers.


We encourage you to continue checking this page for current and future volunteer opportunities.

2024 Point-In-Time (PIT) Count

We are preparing for the next PIT Count to be held in 2024. This biennial event is a communitywide effort to count how many people are living in places not meant for human habitation in any given night. Hundreds of volunteers are deployed in teams to count in pre-identified areas to count unsheltered individuals. Volunteers are also needed to assist with event set up, registration, clean up, and more. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming months.Check our PIT Count page for updates over the coming months!

Please email info@sacstepsforward.org with any questions. We sincerely appreciate your time and support!
