South Oakland Shelter (SOS)


Jun 19 - 25 2022


All of the day

Annually, the St. Regis Catholic Parish serves the community by providing food and shelter for homeless guests from the South Oakland Shelter (SOS). This week-long event, usually the third week of June, requires the help of over 250 volunteers.  There is a full range of service opportunities from meal preparations to providing entertainment for our guests.  Some can be as short as a 30 minute commitment to 5 or 6 hours of overnight supervision.  Parishioners of all ages may participate. For more information, contact Deacon Francis King at or (248) 646-2686 Ext. 4012.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, St. Regis will be working to raise funds for hotel accommodations and meals in lieu of hosting them on-site this year.  If you would like to make a donation, fill out the form below.  We are looking to raise $24,500 to provide room and board for 120 SOS guests.

Volunteers are needed for making lunches, driving, hosting dessert night, and more.  Click links below.
