- Our Winter Process -
- Activation -
While we'd love to be out every night, our resources are limited. Over the years, we've tried out different temperatures, conditions, and used multiple other factors to determine our temperature guidelines that we follow. Please see below for how to "accurately" predict whether or not we'll need you as a volunteer on any given night.
- Team Approach -
St. Louis Winter Outreach works to protect those who live on the streets of St. Louis City during harsh and dangerous winter conditions by utilizing three teams of volunteers: Outreach, Shuttling, and Emergency Shelters. There are "Facilitators" (group leaders) who are responsible for ensuring the efficiency and effectiveness of each team on their assigned night throughout the winter season.
For all-year opportunities, there are options to work with an advocacy team or spend some time helping out with our Assisi Houses as needed. For descriptions of these teams and to send an email inquiry about volunteering, see below.
