Buddy congregations or businesses support the host congregation by filling some of the volunteer duties such as serving dinner and playing with children.
Would your congregation, business or other group like to join with us to help families with children in our community? If so, we would love your help! Families in our shelter stay at community host congregations. Each congregation covering one week every quarter for a total of four weeks per year. For more information, read How Our Shelter Works. Buddy congregations and businesses are matched with host congregations to provide support during this week. The buddy congregation or business then covers the needed volunteer duties for one (or more than one) evening and morning during their week.
You can read about the volunteer duties your congregation or business would need to cover at our shelter here.
