GCHH PROVIDES A CRISIS COLD WEATHER SHELTER PROGRAM TO ADDRESS HOMELESSNESS IN THE Gratiot County Community.
GCHH operates with volunteers from the community who come to the shelter site to act as hosts. Churches, businesses, clubs, service groups, individuals, or groups of individuals can serve as hosts.
Our hosts commit to serving the guests of GCHH in a variety of ways including, providing a hot evening meal, serving as overnight staff, and simply being a hospitable presence.
Your organization can host for one full week (Sunday to Sunday), one day a week day for several weeks, or as your calendar allows. GCHH assists the hosts by providing staff who will register the guests, performing background checks of guests and of volunteers, and monitoring the shelter a portion of each evening. GCHH also provides the overall administration and coordination of this program.
Our shelter is open for the 2021-2022 season and is scheduling intakes for new guests.
