Angels in the Wings

Working together as loving and compassionate volunteers, Angels in the Wings: Arranges the Necessary Gifts to Enrich the Lives of those in our church family who are in need, creating and sharing abundance and love. The Angels in the Wings are loving individuals with a variety of talents who wait “in the wings” until their services are required, and then step forward to assist members of our church family in need.
 

Feeding San Diego

When you give to Feeding San Diego, every dollar stays here in the community, providing meals for kids, adults, and families in San Diego County. In fact, every $1 provides 4 meals ... that's enough to feed a family! So please give generously, because together, we can solve hunger.

Neighborhood House Association Head Start

Head Start is a federally-funded child development program designed to help break the cycle of poverty by providing preschool children of low-income families with a comprehensive program to meet their emotional, social, health, nutritional and psychological needs. Head Start’s approach is that the parent is the child’s primary educator and that the entire family, as well as the community, must be involved in guiding and nurturing the child. Over the past four decades, Head Start has touched the lives of more than 250,000 low-income preschool children and families at more than 140 locations in San Diego County.

Interfaith Shelter

Unity San Diego participates each year for a two week period during the Interfaith Shelter Network. This Network of spiritual groups of many faiths each year sponsors shelters in eight regions of San Diego County during the months of October to April. The network provides shelter for about 250 people a year during that time frame, and allows each person a stay up to eight weeks. The network consists of 120 congregations, with 67 hosting shelters in two-week rotations for up to 12 people a night. Making the network operate year-round would require 26 more hosts in each of its seven branches countywide, or 182 more participants. Unity San Diego provides meals and housing for 12 persons usually the last week in March and the first week in April.  It takes approximately 60 volunteers to provide evening meals, sleep overnight and host on weekends.  Many volunteers find great rewards in this service.

 

November 2021 Update:  Congregations are being asked to open their shelters again in January 2022.
Unity San Diego has decided to be a helping group due to ongoing Covid concerns and a smaller volunteer group. Perhaps we can help with meals. Please watch the weekly news for updated information.
