There are approximately 14,000 homeless people in the city of Atlanta. Each year from November 1 to March 31, The Shrine ministers to a small portion of the homeless along with numerous organizations and churches by being a part of the Central Night Shelter. The Shrine hosts 30-35 of the 100+ guests and by providing sack lunches, dinner and overnight assistance for approximately 30 of the 150 nights.
You can volunteer by preparing a dinner and serving the guests (a cookbook link is provided, Food for a Crowd, to give you some meal ideas). Additionally, our volunteers can provide sack lunches or spend the night with the guests. Overnight volunteers show up by 7PM and are out before 6AM the next morning.
Our signup each season begins in September with several Sign-up Sundays held after the Masses. If you want to check out our schedule, click the Shrine Night Shelter Schedule.
We also provide information about the procedures at Nightly Shelter Procedures - Shrine or Nightly Shelter Procedures - Central
If you are wondering about who you serve, how many you serve, etc., The Shrine Night Shelter FAQ Sheet provides answers to many of your questions.
