Opportunity Details

Winter Contingency (Former IEWS)- Center for Men, Bloomington 

Description:

Continuing the impact started by the Interfaith Emergency Winter Shelter in 2009, join us as we respond to a need in the Bloomington community for the safety of those experiencing homelessness in the cold months. Interfaith Emergency Winter Shelter transitioned officially to Winter Contingency at Wheeler Mission for the winter season of 2019-2020. We have a great need for the continued support of the former IEWS faith community and the many volunteers they developed over the years.

Serve this winter to support those who have no place to go and may not meet admission requirements for other shelter sites in Monroe County. With many options of serving, many volunteers are needed to ensure that the shelter can remain in operation.
