Alpha House provides temporary shelter, food and support services for homeless families in Washtenaw County. It is run by the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Washtenaw County (IHN), of which St. Clare’s is a member.
We provide volunteers four times a year to staff Alpha House and cater meals. We always need more help with this. It is a profound and important form of outreach. Please join us. Contact Jeanne Hernandez (below) for more information or to sign up!
Volunteers are needed to do the following:
- Bring a child friendly dinner for about 25 delivered before 6 pm each evening
- Serve/eat/play with kids after dinner from 5:30(ish)-8:00 pm each evening
- Extra volunteers are always welcome during playtime from 6:45-8:00 pm on any evening
- Spend the night, from 8:30 pm until 7 am the following morning each evening. A private bedroom is provided!
