2024 Hypothermia Prevention Shelter
Holy Comforter will host a one-week Hypothermia Prevention Shelter from Sunday, January 21 to Sunday, January 28. In partnership with FACETS, our Ministry Center will host 30+ guests who live and work without a home. Unlike last year, where guests were housed in a central location and we brought food and supplies to them, our parish will provide a warm place to sleep and nourishing meals.
Personal Supply Donations
Our shelter will offer much needed personal supplies—toothpaste/brushes; deodorant; socks (new); underwear (new); gloves/hats (new or gently used); soap/shampoo, etc.; Smart Trip cards; and gasoline cards. A bin to drop off supplies will be in the Narthex.
Donate much needed funds to support our guests for Metro Smart Trip Cards and other needed supplies. To support the shelter click on the button below and select “Hypothermia Shelter” from the Fund dropdown menu.

Breakfast – Download breakfast menus by day with recipes.
For each breakfast service, we are seeking two individuals/groups to prepare breakfast. Recipes will need to be doubled per individual/group to support all our guests. Please note, Friday’s breakfast is store bought breakfast sandwiches for those who don’t wish to cook but would like to provide a meal.
For each dinner service, we are seeking two individuals/groups to prepare meals. You are asked to follow recipes as closely as possible.
