Compassionate Hands Homeless Ministry
Sheltering those in Wilson County experiencing homelessness during the cold winter months.
More than 30 Wilson County churches are working together to provide emergency shelters during the cold winter months, Dec 1, 2020 – Mar 15, 2021. Due to the impact of COVID-19, we will be unable to host people at Providence Church. Rather, shelters are being formed at two main locations in order to comply with CDC guidelines for the unhoused community. Since 2013, Compassionate Hands has provided 10,089 beds with prayer, friendship, meals, clothing, and toiletries. Thank you for volunteering to serve this 2020/2021 season.
How You Can Serve
- Overnight host: Provide overnight hospitality for our guests.
- Provide and serve breakfast or sack lunches: Prepared at home and served at shelter locations.
- Laundry: Launder sheets at your home.
- Background check
Thank you, Providence Church! All volunteer opportunities for the 2020-2021 season have been filled.
Registration for the 2021-2022 season will begin in Oct 2021.
