G.U.E.S.T. (Gloucester United Emergency Shelter Team) is a coalition of local churches that work together to provide emergency shelter for the homeless in our area during the winter months. Participating churches provide overnight lodging and meals to those who have no home of their own. Volunteers must attend a free training session.
