Winter Programming for the 2021-2022 Winter is still to be determined. We’re still working out the ligististc of what this program will look like. Friendship House is committed to ensuring those most vulnterable are not sleeping on the streets during a cold night this winter.
In past years, starting the second weekend of November, our Winter Programming would run every Saturday and Sunday until the weekend before Palm Sunday. With most day centers, shelters, cofffee shops and public libraries closed on weekend, there are few options to protect oneself from the elements in the winter. We offered coffee, water, bathrooms, and a warm atmosphere. There is no need to RSVP. Volunteers interested in joining us should fill out the Volunteer Application.
