INTERFAITH SHELTER NETWORK

"The “crown jewel” of the Interfaith Shelter Network of San Diego is the Rotational Shelter Program. This is a seasonal emergency shelter program that takes in men, women and families with children.

The Network involves over 120 congregations of all denominations county-wide in a Rotational Shelter program. About 70 of the congregations host the program in their facilities for two or four weeks a year and the remainder serve in a valuable support role, providing volunteers for meals and overnight hosting, transportation and donations."

Christ Lutheran Church has participated in this program since shortly after it was started thirty years ago.  For two weeks each winter we host twelve guests who are supervised by a case manager and working on personal goals to work towards independence and self-sufficiency.  Mission partners volunteer to provide dinners, breakfast and lunch items, bedding and personal items and to stay overnight with the guests. Efforts are being made to establish a team of volunteers so we can keep supporting this important ministry.
