Volunteer at Rachel’s Women’s Center
Sunday, August 9 @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm
An event every 2 months that begins at 5:15 pm on day Second of the month, repeating until Sunday, December 13, 2020
Beth Israel is one of many organizations that brings and serves dinner to 25 – 30 women at Rachel’s House. Beth Israel members and their family/friends have been involved with this project for over 20 years. Our goal is to ensure there are enough human resources on the second Sunday of every other month (and also Christmas night) to nourish the current residents of the day center and shelter, so we coordinate and count on magnanimous volunteers like you to help us achieve that goal.
Rachel’s Night Shelter provides overnight, emergency, short/midterm, safe and sober shelter for homeless women.
Rachel’s Night Shelter was established by Catholic Charities in 1980 as the first transitional residence for homeless women in San Diego County and operates as a drop-in day center for homeless and very low income women, where they can find the following service
- Drop in daycenter
