Youth Experiencing Homelessness

Youth Experiencing Homelessness

This year, the Tzedek Council will be partnering with Larkin Street Youth Services and the City of San Francisco to reduce the number of youth experiencing homelessness and we would love for you to participate with us in this tikkun olam. Hear directly from youth who spoke to us on Yom Kippur here and see below for ways to get involved.

Email Rebecca Reiner for more information.


Ways you can help! 
Do you want to help make a difference in the lives of young adults experiencing homelessness? See below for information about specific volunteer opportunities.

The Light of Giving: Help Youth Experiencing Homelessness in San Francisco this Chanukah 
On Sunday, December 9, the Tzedek Council hosted“Light of Giving”, an afternoon of service and community, where we assembled 300 backpacks with winter essentials for youth facing homelessness in San Francisco. These bags included clothing, rain gear and other items that enhance quality of life for youth in our city and were distributed to the youth served by Larkin Street Youth Services.

San Francisco has more than 1,300 youth who are without shelter every night (see the bottom of the page for our Yom Kippur program where we learned this).  Our hope is that by distributing these backpacks we are able to enhance a young person’s well being and show our support during a difficult time in their lives.


Sponsor a Sunday night dinner for youth experiencing homelessness: Cook, eat, and socialize with residents of G-House, a transitional housing program of Larkin St Youth Services

Sunday Dinners at G-House
Sunday evenings, 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Run by the Larkin Street Youth Services G-House, a 20-bed housing program for San Francisco homeless young adults (ages 18-24, transitioning from adolescence to adulthood), provides residents tools to remove the obstacles in their life which threaten a successful transition to independent living.  Emanu-El has partnered with G-House to support the youth integrating into the community by bringing volunteers on Sunday evenings to cook, eat, and build meaningful relationships with the residents.

To volunteer, please sign up here 2019 Sunday dinner sign-ups are now open! 

It was a pure pleasure to be with the team at Ghouse on Sunday night. Like with most volunteering, I think I got more than I gave. Seeing these amazing youth how they are trying to navigate their lives was inspiring. What a privilege to be able to bring some lasagna, salad and amazing snacks to fill their bellies and have authentic conversations. It made me proud to be part of the Emanuel community
– Emanu-El volunteer

Our youth really enjoy volunteers cooking (bringing dinners too) for them, taking time out of their busy lives and engaging in their home. As you can see our residents are amazing human beings, strong, bright and talented! It’s a beautiful thing to see different cultures, community getting together and breaking bread so to speak and filling the room with pure unconditional love and humanity. Thank you all!
-G-House staff


On Yom Kippur Day, The Tzedek Council’s program, A Conversation with Youth Experiencing Homelessness in Our City*, brought over 200 Emanu-El community members together to discuss how we can help these youth in our city. View photos below and listen to a recording of the program here.

                                                                                                                  

*The panel included:

·         Inspirational youth who have experienced homelessness and are connected to Larkin Street Youth Services;

·         Congregation Emanu-El’s Rabbi Jason Rodich & Rabbi Ryan Bauer

·         Jeff Kositsky (moderator), Emanu-El congregant and Director of the San Francisco Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing; and

·         Dr. Colette Auerswald, Pediatrician and Associate Professor in Community Health Sciences at the School of Public Health at UC Berkeley. She has over 20 years’ experience in the clinical care of marginalized youth in San Francisco. 

 

“The Homeless discussion was quite educational and thought provoking.  The young speakers and the female expert had a significant impact on our day and permanently in our hearts and minds”

“It really was inspiring to see so many people show up to talk about how to address youth homelessness in SF”

“People that I didn’t know who happened to attend were talking about it, and saying “did you go to this awesome panel, wow”
