What to expect when you adopt a room…
As an Adopt-a-Room sponsor, you will be assigned one of the 31 self-contained apartment units in our facility and will be given a list of essentials to serve as a guideline for your sponsorship.
When a family moves out of the shelter, you will be notified by our volunteer coordinator. At this time, we ask that you come to the shelter and prepare your room for the arriving family. As a sponsor, we want you to enjoy the experience of helping meet the basic requirements of a family in need. We encourage you to put a personal touch on the room t make it feel like a home.
