“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
Gloucester United Emergency Shelter Team, began its 3rd season of winter shelter for the homeless on Monday, December 7th and will run through April 4th, 2016.
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.
Visit the GUEST Facebook for intermittent announcements.
We look forward to working with you over the winter months to provide much needed shelter to those in need.
Please call Pauline Littell at 804-815-8030 if you would like to volunteer or have any questions.
