Every [Month you host Project Home], [Your Faith Community] hosts Project Home, a program of Interfaith Action of Greater Saint Paul. During this month, we provide emergency shelter space and volunteer support for families facing homelessness in Ramsey County. Project Home is hosted at two different area faith communities each month and provides 20 emergency shelter beds at each host site.
Project Home is almost completely run by volunteers. We encourage you to sign up and serve as Evening or Overnight Host to provide hospitality to these families in need.

Main responsibilities include playing and reading with teens and children, conversing with guests, securing the facility before bedtime, waking up guests, serving a light breakfast, and securing the facility after guests have left for the day.
