ICRH is always in need of volunteers – afternoons for the day shelter, 4:00-6:30 for intake, and evenings, overnights and mornings at the various churches. Go to ICRHouse.org to sign up to volunteer. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Norma Bailey (email@example.com) or Joyce Henricks (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The ICRH (Homeless Shelter) opens at the end of this month. The UUFCM is again partnering with St. John’s Episcopal Church, and we are scheduled to provide help for the weeks starting Sunday, November 4 and ending Saturday, November 17. We will need volunteers for providing dinners, overnight stays, and other services. There will be a sign-up sheet on Sunday and Joyce Henricks will gently nag you about volunteering.
The Isabella County Restoration House (ICRH), which provides the day shelter and the rotating shelter for our homeless community members, is in need of volunteers for both those efforts, including intake. Please go to www.icrhouse.org and sign up for specific days and times. Feel free to contact Norma Bailey or Joyce Henricks if you have any questions.

If you are willing, and able, to provide food on these days, please let me know. When I see who is willing to help out on what days, I’ll form committees so we can coordinate the dinners. What we want are: one or two main dishes, side dishes (e.g., veggies) that go with the main dishes, salads, desserts, and breads.
Please contact Joyce Henricks (email@example.com or 989-400- 9743) if you have questions or are willing to volunteer.
The remaining dates for our partnering with St. John's for the Restoration House are the weeks of March 5 and April 2. The shelter program has begun and we are again hosting the Welcome/Intake center. If you are interested in volunteering for the Intake Center, or for helping out with other churches, please contact Joyce Henricks (989-773-4709 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
