Our Mission

SOS works to end homelessness by mobilizing interfaith and community resources.


What We Do

For 30 years, South Oakland Shelter (SOS) has worked with partner congregations to provide temporary lodging and supportive services that help homeless individuals and families break the cycle of homelessness and live independently. With an emphasis on homeless prevention, sustainable housing solutions, and career development, SOS implements strategies and programs that provide realistic options for homeless and at-risk individuals and families seeking stabilization and self-sufficiency.
