Womens Homeless Initiative (WHI)
Once a quarter, volunteers from Wash Park UCC support First Unitarian Society of Denver, which hosts 25 homeless women, providing a safe and loving place to rest for a night. Together, we turn First Unitarian’s community space into a temporary home.
Wash Park volunteers help with a range of preparation and hosting activities:
- Helping convert the community space into sleeping and dining areas. We set up cots, put out chairs, and make up the cots with sheets, pillows and blankets.
- Preparing and serving dinner, along with kitchen cleanup. This is a great opportunity for core circles, youth groups, and families. Kids can help serve dinner and clean up dishes.
- Staying overnight to provide a sense of safety for our guests. Two volunteers perform this function. Overnight volunteers can sleep.
- Cleaning up in the morning, converting the temporary home back into the community room.
- Washing sheets for the next rotation.
