Birmingham First will host the South Oakland Shelter August 4 – 11.
South Oakland Shelter is a movable homeless shelter for individuals who are seeking work or are currently employed and within weeks or days of having earned their way off the streets. Area churches share responsibility for hosting the shelter, and each church hosts up to 30 individuals for one week during the year.
We provide a safe place to sleep and eat, evening activities, fellowship, and transportation to and from the Shelter’s office in Lathrup Village.
Over 200 volunteers are needed to host our guests. We look for volunteers to help in the following areas:
