South Oakland Shelter
Larry Ciaramitaro

The purpose of South Oakland Shelter (SOS) is to help homeless individuals with their immediate needs while they actively work toward more permanent solutions to their homelessness. SOS is a rotating emergency shelter that resides in area host churches. Each church takes a one week turn in the rotation. 

Every May our parish co-hosts SOS for one week. We provide housing at the church, three meals a day and transportation to and from our facility for a group of 25-30 men, women and children. It takes a huge commitment and tremendous coordination to make this short, intense week a success. It takes close to 100 people and over $3,000 for the church to help our guests. There are a multitude of ways to be involved in this tremendous effort. Please contact our Ministry Leader by calling the Church Office at (248) 651-6188.
