101 volunteers have kept things running mostly smoothly, but several of these heroes are doing MULTIPLE OVERNIGHTS A WEEK!!
IF YOU CAN, PLEASE VOLUNTEER TO DO AN OVERNIGHT - 8:30PM TO 7:00AM.
and look for dates where not all the slots are filled. Mon. and Wed. seem especially hard....
Job: Monitor smoke breaks, ensure compliance with shelter rules, and general monitoring of guest activities.
Average guest count so far 26 a night with a high of 39 January 30 when it was below zero. The maximum capacity is 40. Many guests have been meeting with the Resource Center caseworker during the day to connect up with available services and move forward.
We are so relieved to have a guaranteed place for folks to take shelter on frigid NH nights.
The Emergency Winter Shelter only exists because of the amazing volunteers who are there every night. Many thanks from all of us to all of you!
