I want to help
Thanks to the strong support of our community, we purchased our new home at 318 South Atherton! As of September 2023, we are fully moved into our renovated and permanent shelter!
Our work is supported by caring community members who volunteer to spend time with our guests, cook meals for those staying with us, and donate items that make our guests feel at home.
Donations can be made online or by check. You can make a check out to "Out of the Cold" and can be mailed to
