Volunteer

We provide an opportunity and resources to our fellow Brothers and Sisters to safely leave the streets. We cannot do it alone. We are looking for supporters of this cause in a effort to help people move beyond shelter into permanent housing.

I hope you will join Walkin' In My Shoes in this humanitarian effort to end homelessness in America.
