Hi Everyone! The Homeless Shelter opened October 1, 2018. We have assisted twenty clients so far this shelter season. Ten of these guests have been children. All Guests receive case management services that connect them to area resources such as educational classes, job training, jobs, services, clothing, food, etc. The current population of the shelter is 7 guests, 5 of these guests are children.

It is amazing but the slots are almost all filled for dinner and night shift volunteers. A very grateful thanks to: Mary Jo DeMatteis, Ann Goodman, Linda and Dave Allen, Jane Jenkins, Judy Webber, Sue Kirchner, Don and Betsy Licata, Jean Peterson, Karen Culotta, Connie Cole, Ron and Valerie Dryka, Sharon and Allen Butler and Jarrett Smith, who have already stepped forward as volunteers.

It is easy and fun to help others while going out - to do the work Christ has given us to do! For any questions or volunteering please sign up on the sheets at the back of the churches or contact Rick Culotta at: 410–829–3129 or wyeheaven@aol.com. or Rev. Charlie.
