New York Ave Shelter 101
October 6 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
New York Avenue Men’s Shelter provides emergency shelter every single night of the year. The shelter offers a hot meal, shower, place to stay off the streets, and access to a case manager. Beds are available on a first come, first served basis to some of our most vulnerable neighbors.
Join us to learn more about the reality of homelessness in DC – see a new environment, learn about a typical day at the shelter, ask questions – and help us clean and maintain the inside of the shelter.
All supplies will be provided; volunteers should wear comfortable clothing that they don’t mind getting dirty. Please note that all volunteers under 18 years of age should be accompanied by an adult.
New York Avenue Men’s Shelter is located at 1355 New York Avenue NE, Washington, DC 20002.
