FBCA partners with RITI twice a year to provide shelter for up to 12 women. Each week, a different congregation opens its facilities to welcome the women as guests, offering a warm safe place for them as they work hard to move forward to permanent housing. The simple goal is to keep women without homes from sleeping on the street and risking their safety. The greater goal is to build caring, supportive relationships with them, one week at a time. Volunteers needed for four teams: evening meals, evening hosts, overnight hosts and transportation (driving church van mornings/evenings — no commercial license necessary). Approximately 72 volunteers participate.
