Shelter is available in the evenings on especially cold nights during the winter months. If the temperature reaches 20 degrees or below (wind chill temperature included), the shelter will offer a warm space with beds, blankets, and pillows. This is strictly an overnight stay where guests arrive late in the evening (between 7pm – 9pm) and must leave by 7am. Our goal is to fulfill a basic need to those who have found themselves homeless.
For the 2017 Winter months, the following Elyria churches are partners with us in this ministry. We all take turns offering shelter.
– First United Methodist, 312 3rd Street, (enter at the west end of the building on 3rd street).
– First United Presbyterian, 200 East Avenue, (enter at side door by parking lot).
Below are the calendars for each month indicating which church is hosting which week when necessary.
