Our shelter network consists of 12 host congregations who house the guests for one week at a time on a rotating basis. The host congregations give our families their own private spaces for sleeping. Most set up a “community room” in which the families can congregate to play, watch movies or just chat. They are served dinner prepared by a few of the up to 50 volunteers each host congregation uses during a hosting week. Most host congregations are assisted by support congregations who provide volunteers, food, and financial support.
