Volunteer for Dinner
We need volunteers to provide, prepare, and cook dinner at our emergency family shelter in Martinez.
This is a great volunteer opportunity for groups who want to make an immediate impact in their community. We need groups of volunteers to provide dinner Monday through Friday at our emergency family shelter in Martinez. Volunteers should expect to provide enough food for 12 adults, 15 children, and themselves. We now have single days available for groups of 3-8 volunteers.

About Mountain View Emergency Family Shelter: Mountain View provides a safe and warm place for families to sleep as they work on transitioning out of homelessness and back into a home of their own. Case managers work one-on-one with the families, helping to identify challenges and steps for helping families move toward self-sufficiency. A credentialed teacher provides mentoring and tutoring for all members of a family. Mental health counselors provide assessments, therapy, and link families with appropriate mental health services. Priority for placement at Mountain View is given to mothers in the last trimester of pregnancy, families with very young children, and families sleeping in places not meant for habitation, such as cars or parks.
