SVDP has multiple ways to get involved.
We welcome your support.

All of the following opportunities are perfect for your work group, church group or other community focused clubs, looking to volunteer remotely and help others.


Provide Ready to eat Meals (REM’s): Prepare and provide bagged lunches for our guests to enjoy.

Host a Catered Meal: Treat our guests to a specialty meal through catering, or hire food truck to serve SVDP residents.

Housewarming Gifts: Help the newly housed transition out of homelessness with a gift of housing essentials.

Carry-on Drive: Collect new and gently used backpacks and duffle bags to be distributed amongst guests.

Sponsor Birthdays: Help Guests celebrate their birthday by sponsoring a monthly celebration filled with cake, ice cream and goodie bags.

IT Support: Aid SVDP in their efforts to expand and improve their IT offerings for guests.

Share Our Story: After you provide sandwiches, a special meal, necessary items, bags or a special birthday treat, please help us raise our digital visibility, increase awareness of our work, and through your digital efforts serve the unsheltered and those fleeing violence.
