Socks Needed for Homeless. Please Help

Cold weather is here and there are people on the street who need help including warm clothing. At this time we are appealing for donations of socks for the homeless clients that our Street Outreach Services (SOS) serves. Wool socks are the best and they can be new or gently used. SOS is a mobile medical clinic providing urgent and preventive medical services to more than 800 homeless patients each year and 2,000 outreach encounters. A van equipped with an exam room is driven to established locations to provide medical care and support services to homeless clients on the street, in parks, under freeway overpasses – wherever they congregate. Patients are referred to local community-based health clinics for follow-up care and to establish a medical home. In some instances SOS staff transport patients to specialty appointments and other critical services. In addition to the van, SOS staff established “suitcase” (a carryall containing the medical equipment needed) clinics at designated locations where homeless people receive services, including soup kitchens.

Thank you in advance for supporting our efforts!

Socks can be dropped off and/or sent to our office located at:
