Join us for an evening of documentary films and discussion on homelessness in the United States and in St. Louis.  Come to learn and engage with others from various perspectives.

Friday, March 20th:  Volunteer at Shalom House 

Take action by volunteering at Shalom House, a St. Louis shelter for homeless women.  Their mission statement is:  “Shalom House gives hope to homeless women through innovative programs and supportive services designed to stabilize and rebuild lives.”  Meet at Newman at 10:30 am to carpool over together.  We will be touring the center, making lunch for the residents then eating with them to get to know them better.
