Our mission is to provide financial and volunteer support for the Interfaith Emergency Shelter for homeless individuals and its associated programs.

Homelessness can happen to anyone at anytime.  It knows no boundaries, and it effects hundreds of people right here in Hampshire County each year. Thankfully, there are many organizations in town to help the homeless, and the Friends is proud to be one of them.

Through our fundraising efforts, we ensure that the shelter doors stay open through the six coldest months of the year (November – April).  Our volunteer meal teams provide warm and nutritious meals to shelter guests each evening, and our overnight volunteers provide back-up coverage to the staff.  Members of the community also help by contributing monetarily and volunteering in other ways (i.e., knitting hats and gloves, donating toiletries or socks, offering vocational workshops, etc.).
