Soujourner's House on the Ridge (SHOR) will be opening its nomadic homeless shelter program this year.
It's the third year for the program, staffed by volunteers. Area churches provide shelter for the homeless of the Paradise Ridge on an alternating basis ... meals and showers are also provided.
SHOR provided 1,147 individual nights of safe, warm shelter to 60 guests last season, helping them with a place to stay and fellowship.
More churches are needed this year, and so are volunteers ... who work everything from intake and laundry, meal coordination, and overnight monitors.
SHOR is having a Volunteer Orientation and Training Class on Thursday, October 30th at 6:30 p.m. in the Youth Room of the Paradise Adventist Church. It's located at 5720 Academy Drive off Nunneley Road.
