What We Do

Our 2019-20 low-barrier emergency temporary wintertime shelter will be at 720 West Main St., in a busy central urban neighborhood. Volunteers are needed for interior cleaning, furniture moving, re-stocking shelter supplies and updating plumbing / electrical systems. Information about how to volunteer is found here; opportunities for in-kind donations are described here.

Come see our new home at the November 24 open house!
