The San Francisco Interfaith Council, Episcopal Community Services and the current Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing have partnered to operate the San Francisco Interfaith Winter Shelter. Designed to augment existing shelter opportunities during the coldest months of the year (Sunday before Thanksgiving through the end of February), the Interfaith Winter Shelter provides breakfast, dinner and a safe, warm overnight rest for up to 100 homeless men each night. The Interfaith Winter Shelter is hosted by four congregations: St. Boniface Catholic Church, St. Mary's Cathedral, St. Mark's Lutheran Church, and First Unitarian Universalist Society. Each year, a tremendous effort takes place in networking with local faith communities to open their spaces and their hearts. Volunteers from many faith traditions prepare and serve meals each evening and a light breakfast is provided each morning. The meals are prepared and served by over 50 volunteer congregations and organizations. Up to 500 volunteers give their time to this important cause throughout the shelter's season. This effort would not be a success without the generous and faithful commitment of these  volunteers and the support of the San Francisco Night Ministry.
