Shelter House provides temporary housing for those who need it, and Cross Park Place, which opened in 2019, has filled its 24 apartments for
chronically homeless singles who sign leases. Case managers offer employment support, resume writing, job training and interview skills, etc. Educational and mental health help are among other offerings.
This is the first year (in 15 or so) that UUS has not offered a buffet luncheon to benefit Shelter House. With the help of many, we have normally raised $1,200 to 1,600 as we opened our Fellowship Hall to the wider community. By giving extra generously now, we can partially make up this loss.
Donations can be made online, or mailed to the office. (Write checks
to UUS, with Shelter House on the memo line.)
