One hundred percent of your donation goes to help the homeless as we are a small group of volunteers with no salaries, overhead, or administrative costs.
We do, however, need help in defraying operating costs: nightly purchases of thrift store blankets, bottled water, and gas to reach Oakland's homeless each night.
