Open Arms Women's Shelter began its 4th winter season providing shelter for homeless women in Valparaiso, IN.
Seven participating churches provide homeless women a safe place to sleep seven days a week from October 15 to April 15. Working in shifts from 6:00 pm to 7:00 am, volunteers provide meals and supervision throughout the night. The need for volunteers is crucial to sustain the shelter. Volunteers can serve once a week, once a month or as often as it fits into their schedule.
