Volunteers of America- Shelter Program

Volunteers of America provides shelter, meals and support to 150 homeless men and women at Hope for Home shelter in Pomona. They also offer a multitude of services to help individuals transition into housing.
OLA has established the third Sunday of every month to support this mission. If you are interested in providing food for a Sunday dinner, contact Tony Soto at [email protected] .

Rolando Lumbsden of Volunteers of America has issued an updated list of needs for homeless individuals transitioning into apartments through VOA.

“We are so glad we get to share in this mighty work with you,” he reports. “OLA, you are transforming lives with the care and time you make to share in giving the formerly unhoused a fresh start.

“We want to expressly show our appreciation for your generosity, contribution and unselfish kindness to our participants. Please continue to bless and pray for others generously and intentionally.”
