For the eighth year in a row, the Winter Haven overnight shelter in Menomonie will be open for homeless adults. From Nov. 15th until March 31st, Winter Haven provides a safe, warm place for adults age 18 and over to sleep overnight, providing food, showers and laundry facilities.
Run entirely by dedicated community volunteers, with oversight by the Stepping Stones Shelter Coordinator, there are two shifts which run from 7:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. or 1:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. — and each shift requires two trained volunteers to ensure the shelter can be open. All volunteers must undergo a training session at the shelter before they can sign up for a shift.
All training opportunities take place at the shelter at 1518 Stout Road (next to Stepping Stones). Returning Winter Haven volunteers will meet on Monday, October 21 at 6 p.m. For new volunteers, trainings are as follows:
• Thurs., Oct. 24 at 6 p.m.
• Tues., Oct. 29 at 6 p.m.
• Sat., Nov. 2 at 10 a.m.
• Mon., Nov. 4 at 6 p.m.
• Tues., Nov. 12 at 6 p.m.
To schedule a training for a group or for one-on-one training, contact Jill Seichter, email@example.com or call 715-235-2920.
