First Pres opens its doors again, January 7 - 20, 2019 to provide sleeping space for up to 25 men directed here by the Shelter Association. We are looking for evening (7:00 - 10:00 p.m.) and overnight hosts each night (7:00 p.m. - 7/8:00 a.m.; shared, stay-awake shifts are between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.), and morning drivers (around 7:00 a.m.) on the weekends. There are at least three hosts each night, so you will get plenty of sleep. You can also help by donating hot food, snacks, gloves, hats, socks, hand warmers, and new long underwear. We also welcome First Pres groups whose members would like to serve together or host a specific night. Veteran volunteers will be present to help orient others. Watch for sign-up opportunities near the Welcome Center or sign up online.
