April 2020 Update:
The Heart & Home Women’s shelter was scheduled to stay at UUCPA through April 5th. Due to the shelter in place mandate, UUCPA has extended their stay. While on-site volunteers are not needed, donations of food are. Please sign up to bring a meal if you can: UUCPA Heart and Home 2020 signups
Heart & Home Women’s Shelter returns to UUCPA this Sunday. Participants will be at UUCPA from 7:00 pm to 7:00 am every night through April 5th. Up to 15 women eat dinner in the Fireside Room or the Lobby and then will sleep at UUCPA, mainly in the main hall.
We are seeking more volunteers and more dinners!
Bringing dinner means an entree and a side dish for 15, delivered to UUCPA soon after 7 pm. You are welcome to either drop off a ready to eat dinner or to also stay and eat. You can see which dinner dates are open and sign up here: UUCPA Heart and Home 2020 signups
Volunteering means helping with set up, dishes, and also joining our guests for dinner.
You can see available volunteer shifts here: UUCPA Heart and Home 2020 signups
Elementary and older children and youth are welcome. There is plenty to do! When you arrive, go to the kitchen or the white trailer behind room A, and say “I’m here to help with Heart and Home”. The lead volunteer for the night will get you started. Volunteers include UUCPA members, and also Stanford students and community volunteers.
Thanks for your help! Edie Keating and Beth Sherman
