Shelter Opens

Home

The SOS Shelter is closed until Winter 2014. 

A collaborative effort of local churches and the Washington County Community.

The S.O.S. serves homeless men, women and couples without children during the coldest months of the winter giving them a safe, warm place to stay overnight. Due to the cold months the shelter is open for 90 consecutive days during the months of December, January and February. The shelter welcomes guests with a hearty supper upon arrival and also provides guests with a breakfast in the morning prior to leaving. The shelter is hosted at Sonrise Church and is made possible by the support of over 200 volunteers from 22 area churches and the Washington County community. The volunteers perform a variety of duties including checking-in guests, preparing the evening meal and serving as evening and overnight hosts.


 





Mission Statement: Guided by the teachings of Jesus Christ, we come together to provide a winter shelter that meets our guests physical and spiritual needs in an atmosphere that reflects God's boundless love. We will always maintain a safe environment for our guests and volunteers. We strive to be good stewards of the resources and trust given to us by our supporters and the church in which we operate.
