Winter is a tough time to be on the streets. This winter we are partnering with Winter Relief to help provide shelter for the homeless in Anne Arundel County. Through an all volunteer effort, Winter Relief has operated as a seasonal Emergency Temporary Shelter since 1992. Hosted at different Anne Arundel County religious facilities each week from late October through April, the shelter is a safe and comfortable refuge for those experiencing homelessness throughout the coldest months of the year. Each facility provides services, meals, and spiritual guidance to the guests during their designated week. It is a unique opportunity for people in the community to reach out and share their blessings with those less fortunate. The Winter Relief Program which now provides meals, limited case management, and other support services as needed for up to 60 men and women each night.
For our Guests: To keep those experiencing homelessness in the Baltimore/Annapolis corridor from freezing to death during the Winter months and to show them God’s love in simple practical ways during our time together.
For our Volunteers: To share with them the blessing of a broader, deeper faith through serving society’s least, last, and lost.
We are looking for volunteers to lead this effort. We will need lots of help.
