How To Help

Make a Donation

We are fortunate to have many valuable partners participating in the process who understand the scale of this crisis and are generously providing vital monetary and in-kind support to help us continue with this ongoing pilot project

Currently 100% of funds raised through the Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce Foundation fundraising page goes toward providing temporary structures and services in support of Oakland’s “Cabin Communities.”

You can also visit HandUp! an online fundraising platform that supports Oakland’s homeless population in a range of ways. 

Provide Housing

Housing Oakland gives property owners a cash bonus and interest-free loans for repairs and upgrades if they allow a Section 8 family to move in. The program also provides current Section 8 property owners who lose a tenant with up to two months of rent. Contact the Oakland Housing Authority at 510-874-1653 for information.

Bay Area Community Services (BACS) coordinates rooms for rent. If you can help by renting a room, in-law unit or home, or know someone who might be interested, email BACS at RoomsInOakland@bayareacs.org.


Service providers who are making critical support available include: Operation DignityBay Area Community Services (BACS), and Lava Mae (a mobile shower provider).
