Lancaster County Council of Churches in partnership with St. Mary's Catholic Church will provide emergency cold weather shelter for women and children. The shelter can accommodate 46 women and children, providing a warm, safe, and dry place to stay overnight during the winter season. Through Community Homeless Assessment and Referral Team (CHART) guests are able to work on long-term housing solutions.
The Shelter operates from December through March, from 7:00 PM - 8:00 AM. We rely on volunteers during these winter months to ensure the program runs efficiently. We appeal to all churches, civic organizations, and the community at large to volunteer as groups: For further information please contact Rebecca Saner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
