Being Homeless is a Crime in Sacramento California

I saw this moving video on my Facebook wall yesterday. I am so inspired to help the homeless right now! It is a great feeling to have such a strong purpose. It makes me feel like I am doing my art again and that I can possibly do some good with my energies. This video is frustrating, sad, and really just pisses me off. I have never been a big fan of Sacramento. I just think the City especially is gross. I guess there are nice parts of Sacramento just like any other place I just have not seen them personally.

Volunteers at Sacramento Loaves & Fishes

Our Philosophy

Our PhilosophyWithout passing judgment, and in a spirit of love and hospitality, Loaves & Fishes feeds the hungry and shelters the homeless. We provide an oasis of welcome, safety, and cleanliness for homeless men, women and children seeking survival services.
Founded in 1983, we are governed by a board of directors selected from Loaves & Fishes and from the community-at-large – people who have demonstrated compassion and concern about the needs of the homeless and the indigent poor.
We recognize the dignity and spiritual destiny of each person, and hope by our attitude of hospitality and love, to nourish not only the physical needs of those who come to Loaves & Fishes, but also their spiritual need for love, acceptance, respect, and friendship.
We serve each person with the belief that "as often as you did it for one of my least brothers and sisters, you did it for me." (Matthew 25:40)

No Government Money

Loaves & Fishes is a private charity; it neither solicits nor accepts government money, but relies solely on private donations to support its work of feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless.
Why we don't accept government funds

Volunteer at Loaves & Fishes

More than 1,000 volunteers from the Sacramento region come to Loaves & Fishes during the course of a month to help feed the hungry and shelter the homeless. Because of the amount of hands-on labor needed to prepare, cook, and serve a daily noontime meal sufficiently large to feed more than 500 hungry people, most of the volunteers work in the Dining Room. Some other volunteer opportunities are on our Thank You letter Committe, teachers assistant at Mustard Seed School, or helping at the service desk in Friendship Park. Some volunteers sign up for one day-a-month, some every week, and some just once a year.
