FPC to Help Provide Temporary Shelter to Families in Need
Frederick's Religious Coalition for Emergency Human Needs has received city approval for an emergency shelter for homeless families. During daylight hours, families will attend programs at a day shelter housed in the former manse of Asbury Methodist Church. Overnight, families will sleep in shelters sponsored by 9 downtown churches, including FPC.
The 9 churches will take turns providing emergency overnight shelter for 2 weeks at a time. FPC's first turn will take place October 4th-18th.
The program is intended to be short-term, with most families staying up to 90 days. During the day, adults will receive assistance to help move their families out of homelessness. Children will receive transportation to the schools they already attend, to maintain academic and social stability.
A Religious Coalition staff member will be on-site at each overnight shelter, to screen, register, and monitor clients. In addition, FPC will need 2 volunteers each evening from 6 until 10 pm, and 2 overnight volunteers from 10 pm until 6 am.Volunteers must attend a training session conducted by the Religious Coalition. For more information, contact Libby Stauffer, FPC's representative to the Family Shelter Board.
