    A Place of Hope
    July 24–31: Shelter, meals & hospitality
    Female Overnight Hosts needed!

    “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me” (Matthew 25:35).


    In partnership with area churches and the Salvation Army, Calvary will be providing meals and shelter for 10–12 homeless women from July 24–31 to offer a place of hope during a time of need.

    Each afternoon, we will be bringing the group from the uptown Salvation Army center to our CLC for dinner, an evening activity, and an overnight stay in our “guest rooms.” Each morning, we will provide transport back to the Salvation Army so the group can participate in their day program.


    Thank you for the tremendous response for additional volunteers to support this new ministry opportunity!

    Remaining needs:

    • Overnight Hosts (Women Only) sleep in the CLC building with guests through the night. Beds and linens are provided! Hosts arrive at 7:00 PM and may leave by 5:30 AM after the morning greeters have arrived. Hosts will pray with the women each night, make sure lights are out by 10:00 PM, assist with waking women at 5:00 AM, and keep overall watch. At this point, we do still need hosts for Saturday and Sunday evenings.
       
    • Bedding: 12 pillows, 30 sets of flat & fitted twin size sheets, 12 twin blankets or quilts. We are happy to borrow and return gently used bed linens.
       
    • Morning Greeters will arrive on-site no later than 5:30 AM. They will help serve breakfast and get guests ready to board the bus by 7:00 AM. (Various times still needed.)
       
    • Evening Greeters will welcome our guests as they arrive each night. Greeters will arrive on-site no later than 6:45 PM. (Various times still needed.)

    Needs for the following roles have been filled:

    • Setup & Tear Down Helpers will creatively set up and decorate the designated CLC classrooms for the guests. 
       
    • Weekday Evening Hosts Families or individual women from Calvary will have dinner and participate in activities with the guests.
       
    • Weekend Activity Hosts will plan and arrange activities for women on Saturday and Sunday. Suggested activities include a crochet club, boutique, beauty/hygiene/wellness activities (pedicure, manicure, hair styling).
       
    • Van Drivers pick up our guests in the morning and evenings at the Salvation Army Center uptown. Approved drivers may choose to volunteer for one or more days to drive our rental vans.
