Description: Emergency shelter program is currently geared for the winter season beginning on October 15th to April 15th.

We operate from 7pm to 7am Monday through Sunday. Operates on a rotational site schedule and takes place in space provided by local churches designated as a shelter site. Shelters locations are available for men and women respectfully.

Volunteers Requests by Interfaith Community PADS - Winter Seasonal Shelter: We are terribly understaffed. We are always looking for people willing to donate their time even if it's just a four hour shift a month. One of our largest area of need is overnight site monitors. These two shifts (11pm to 3am and 3 am to 7am) are the hardest to find people for. The first overnight monitor simply watches over the guests as they slept and are responsible for keeping the guest safe and secure. The early morning shift wakes the guests, serves breakfast and ensures the location is clean and things restored to their proper location with the assistance of the guests.

Donation Requests by Interfaith Community PADS - Winter Seasonal Shelter: We are always looking for goods donation as we work entirely through the charity of others. We have no monetary budget to purchase items used on a daily purpose. Since this is our first season to have a women's shelter program, blankets (no comforters), pillows and pillowcases are welcome. Best to contact us for current needs list.

Many of these shelters now have waiting lists. Please call before going to them. Many waiting lists are very long. Shelters and service also go out of business. Always call ahead to confirm that this location is still active. If you find that this location is no longer operating, please send us a comment using the form below.

If you have pictures of the shelter, I will upload them on this page. Please email me with the name of your shelter and the pictures to:
