2007 Homeless Shelter Program

Nichols-Bethel will be providing shelter during the week of 05-12 March 2007. We will need lots of help to make the shelter a success. This help takes many forms; including drivers to assist with the daily transportation between the Church and Glen Burnie, people to help with preparation and serving of the evening meal and the lunches for the next day, and manning for shelter watch.
(The watch is broken into two shifts, the first from 5:00 P.M. to 11:30 P.M. and the second (mid) shift, 11:30 P.M. to approximately 6:30 A.M. the next day.) In addition to these daily duties, we will also need to provide transportation for guests whose work requires a ride outside of our normal pick up times and to the showers at Crofton Middle School on Tuesday and Thursday evening. At the end of the shelter week, we will need to sort, wash, and fold the bedding used by our guests and deliver it to another sheltering church. The reward for this hard work is a unique opportunity to put our Christian beliefs into action and to touch the lives of homeless people in a very direct and positive way. The strength of the Winter Relief program is the caring and compassion that our member churches show to a segment of our population in great need of those gifts. If you would like to assist or desire more information, please contact our site coordinator, Jim Roser, at (410) 672-6533 or jh.roser@verizon.net.
