Parish Engagement


Parish Engagement seeks to serve the residents of 95122 through accompaniment services where volunteers spend 4 hours of their month with residents who are in need of service navigation and a loving committed presence in their lives. Through a mutually transformative experience, volunteers and clients work together to overcome barriers to poverty - together. 

Volunteer Expectations

Each volunteer will participate in a 16 hour training plan where s/he/they will be trained in trauma and the accompaniment model. After training is complete, volunteers will be matched with a client to work with for 4 months on a specific goal identified by the client. 

If interested in becoming a volunteer, please email the Program Manager Bridget Balajadia at All volunteers are required to complete a TB screen and background check.
