Join us Saturday September 17th for a family-focused special event highlighting the issue of childhood homelessness in San Francisco.

Compass Family Services is partnering with local author Christie Matheson, author of the middle-reader book Shelter. There will be fun activities and a discussion with Christie and Compass experts on family homelessness. 

There are many ways to get involved with this event! In addition to attending, we encourage you to participate in a drive for books and basic needs. You can bring all items on September 17th. 

We have two different drive opportunities. You can find information and templates below to get your drive started!
