“If our hopes of building a better and safer world are to become more than wishful thinking, we will need the engagement of volunteers more than ever.” — Kofi Annan
We help hundreds of people who are homeless eat healthy home-cooked meals… individual meals have been lovingly cooked and served by the volunteers of the Friends of the State Street Family at no cost to taxpayers.
We collect and distribute survival gear so when people can’t sleep in a shelter, they don’t freeze… sleeping bags, blankets, backpacks, flashlights, personal safety devices, hygiene items, new socks, new underwear, winter boots, gloves, coats, and hats have been provided by FSSF.
We are fierce advocates who develop trust and foster relationships with each individual so when they are ready we can be there to help them get permanent, supportive housing, support for sobriety, trauma counseling, medical or mental health care.
*All volunteers who wish to work on a Street Outreach Team must be a minimum of 18 years of age. Friends of the State Street Family is not able to validate court-appointed volunteer hours.
