notes on emergency Short-Term Sheltering

 

Funds are continually needed to assist with short-term sheltering at motels when the Overnight Sheltering program at Tabernacle is closed. These are emergency funds to provide a reprieve from cold, rainy, or stormy weather, as well as to allow an opportunity for a good night’s sleep and a shower (especially, allowing for preparation for job interviews, etc.). 

 

Priority for sheltering is given to those with children, having significant medical difficulties, or experiencing other critical needs. Also given special consideration will be those demonstrating significant progress in becoming financially self-sufficient and showing a commitment to building a relationship within faith-based programs (e.g., church attendance, recovery programs, and online devotionals, etc.).
