Shine your light this holiday season!

At South Oakland Shelter, we don’t just help homeless people—we build communities that end homelessness through our emergency shelter, housing, and supportive service programs. If you want to make a lasting difference in the lives of individuals and families in need, visit to support our year-end campaign, Shine Your Light for the Holidays, and to take advantage of a 1:1 matching offer by our Presenting Sponsor, Epsilon.

How your gift can help…

  • $15 supports one night of food and shelter for a neighbor in need
  • $60 provides one month of transportation services
  • $100 provides a family with warmth and electricity for one month in their own home
  • $180 provides one month of case management to ensure those who secure housing, maintain it
  • $1,000 ($83/mo) covers the cost of a deposit to move someone out of homelessness and into housing
