Dear Friends of Heart + Home Collaborative Women's Shelter,

Sunday, January 15, 2017

Heart + Home welcomed the first seven guests of the 2017 winter shelter
season tonight. Board of Directors members and community volunteers worked
this afternoon to put the final touches on arrangements to welcome our
guests. There were welcome gift bags to assemble with toiletries and brand
new socks (contributed by Mission Outreach Church). Mattresses needed
mattress protectors. Food for tomorrow's breakfast and lunches had to be
readied. Neighbors brought ingredients for roll-your-own tacos.
Volunteers from Stanford and the Palo Alto community dined with the guests
before the guests bedded down in the church for the night.

They'll get up at 5:45 later this morning. They'll rise and dress and pack
up their things and help carry their mattresses to the trailer. We'll all
be putting things away and cleaning up from the night before and be gone on
our ways by 7 a.m.

The shelter will be taking new applicants for a couple of remaining spots
and will keep operating until Feb 27.

Applicants should call 650.40.WOMEN

Heart + Home is (one of) the only sources of additional shelter beds in
Santa Clara County in far too many years, unfortunately.

​Heart + Home is grateful to all who contributed and cooperated (including
City Planning and Building Inspections offices)​. Special thanks to Kelcy
