Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

ROOTS shelter needs help

This just came across my desk

At ROOTS Young Adult Shelter, we open our doors to 18-25 year old guests every night of the week. Our guests are provided a safe place to sleep, showers and laundry services, and the chance to meet adults who recognize them as members of our community. Volunteers are critical to our staying open, but the summer months mean a shortage of these caring adults. Unless we find more volunteers, we will have to have nights when we send people away and close the shelter.

Agree to volunteer 2 or 2.5 hours of your time, either preparing and serving breakfast (6:30- 8:30 am) or helping to run shelter during the evening hours (8:00-10:30 pm).
Broadcast this message to others that can help keep shelter open!
For more details on our volunteer opportunities, check out our website:

When you’re ready to sign up, e-mail us at

Thank you for your help,

Kristine Cunningham
Interim Program Director
