View Upcoming Training Dates

We need volunteers to offer hospitality and a warm, safe place to sleep for our homeless guests. Can YOU help on a 3 hour shift? Give support and encouragement to our guests who have no place to sleep?

Our mission is to provide a low-barrier winter shelter for homeless individuals in Monroe County from November 1 through March 31, from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m., seven days a week. Our purpose is to offer a warm, safe place to those who have no place to go and do not meet admission requirements for other shelter sites in this community.

The Shelter is currently recruiting volunteers and accepting donations for the 2013-2014 season. We welcome your participation as volunteer, donor, or community partner in a collaborative effort that is strengthened by the whole community’s involvement.
