An ecumenical, interfaith group has been working to for seven winter seasons to shelter to homeless men during the coldest winter months. The group, To Our House, provides temporary shelter and compassionate support for homeless men who seek such shelter. As the years have progressed, the staff have found ways to help the men find work, and permanent shelter of their own. They have referred them to needed services that will continue to serve them.
With Jesus’ call in mind, BPC will host about fourteen men for one week. We will provide the dinners, evening activities, bag lunches and a breakfast. We will provide volunteers to spend the night, volunteers to volunteer the linens after the week, and a volunteer to be at the intake center in Christiansburg each evening as the men arrive. There will also be a staff member of To Our House present at all times.
Volunteers from the local congregations are the heart and soul of the temporary shelters. All the details and descriptions of the roles are available with each link.
