SAVE THE DATE --> March 14 – March 28, 2016   (Easter 3/27)

The Winter Nights Rotating Shelter Program  is a project of the Social Justice Alliance of the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County. It provides a clean, safe and warm facility at night and a daytime services center during winter for homeless families with children. The program will serve up to 30 persons at any given time.  Congregations throughout central and east Contra Costa provide space, meals, and volunteers.  Winter Nights will provide bedding, and Winter Nights professional staff will supervise the shelter 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

The hosting congregations provide site volunteers, meals, and supplies.

Winter Nights @ MDUUC is co-sponsored by the Food Project and Homeless & Affordable Housing Committee (HAHC)
