Please join St. Tikhon Mission to support the Winter Shelter Network, our local charity of the month for November. Collections are held every Sunday in church, and donations can be made online.
WINTER SHELTER NETWORK is a network of churches serving the homeless in Douglas County
An often hidden issue in our community is homelessness. Specifically, approximately 69% of homeless families are led by single mothers. In 2015, a group of churches began looking at solutions to the issue of homelessness. Along with the partnership with county agencies, the Winter Shelter Network (WSN) was formed. WSN serves single women and single mothers with children in Douglas County by providing a temporary, safe shelter to receive rest, meals, and connection during the winter months. The shelter is open from November 1 until March 31, and potential guests are referred to the WSN by local service agencies. Guests are provided a place to sleep for the night and hearty meals in a safe, welcoming environment.
