Grace Chapel has partnered with the Winter Shelter Network (WSN) to provide housing during the winter months for up to 40 women and children.
The WSN is a group of churches in Douglas County who are partnering together to help residents who are experiencing homelessness. The WSN is led by a council made up of representatives from partner churches and community agencies.
This initiative helps homeless women and their children in Douglas County who would normally be sleeping in their car, but during the winter months have nowhere to go. Grace will offer a clean bed, a hot evening meal, breakfast, a packed lunch, and showering facilities.
WE NEED YOU!
In order to provide these services for these deserving women and children, we need over 50 volunteers each month.
Each week, we need a team of people for many different roles: meals, evening and overnight hosts, a laundry and supply team, and clean-up crews. You can volunteer once-a-month, or every other week.
