Groundworks Collaborative

meal team A HUGE THANKS to our Meal Team, under the leadership of Rob and Jill Harnish, which has provided a meal  for guests of our Seasonal Overflow Shelter for every  month in winter for the last nine years!

Guilford Church has been actively involved in running the  Seasonal Overflow Shelter (SOS) since establishing it with interfaith partners in 2006 .  Now part of Groundworks Collaborative and staffed with paid volunteers the shelter houses as many as 36 individuals a night, the SOS has been at or near our 33-bed capacity for much of the winter thus far.  They have not yet had to turn anyone away as we have been able to sleep some people on cots and couches when needed.
