Interfaith Shelter Network of San Diego
November 10, 2010
The interfaith Rotational shelter provides food and shelter to the homeless in San Diego county from November thru March. The shelter rotates from church to church every two weeks and provides shelter to up to 15 people at each church. The guests are screened and are provided case management and all have a plan for self sufficiency.
Our church, The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Deguito, has partnered with St. James Catholic church for over 25 years in providing 2 weeks of shelter. It is very rewarding for our volunteers in seeing the guests making progress on their path of self sufficiency.
