Greetings from Pastor Lynne!
The Warming Shelter Coordinating Committee is preparing to open this winter. This shelter was approved by the congregation in 2018 and we have been working hard to be ready. When the temperature gets below 32 degrees, we will open to serve people who are HIV+. We are now seeking more volunteers to sign up and serve. Those who are interested are asked to attend one of two trainings that are planned for October- Wednesday, October 9, 1:30-5:30pm or Saturday, October 12, 9:00 – 1:00pm in Michel Hall at Ainsworth UCC. Training consists of De-escalation, HIV Basics and Shelter Orientation.
Attached is the Shelter Volunteer Job Description for your review. We anticipate needing 2 volunteers at all times and if we have enough would like to offer shifts: 3-9pm, 9pm-5am, 5-9am. Someone can volunteer for more than one shift. Remember the Shelter will only open when the weather is severe. Volunteers will be contacted. Please contact me asap about your interest.
