Public Action to Deliver Shelter

Each Thursday night beginning in October through the end of April St. Joseph provides shelter to the homeless of McHenry County.

On the 4th Thursday St. Joseph volunteers are the hosts for our guests.  

We are blessed to be able to host a shelter for the homeless of McHenry County.  In order to do this, we need your help.  There are many way you can help.  Our shifts are: 

5:30-8:00 p.m.  This includes setting up mattresses for our guests to sleep on, preparing coffee and cold drinks, setting up paper plates and plastic ware, help with serving the food, cooking and cleaning up.

8:00-11:00 p.m.  This involves preparing lunches for our guests to take with them in the morning, chaperoning our guests and overseeing their going to bed.

11:00 p.m.-3:00 a.m.  Chaperone our guests while they sleep.

3:00-7:00 a.m.  Chaperone our guests, prepare their breakfast—coffee, cereal, whatever, get them up, serve breakfast and supervise cleanup of Fr. Miller Hall and their departure.

Please contact Bill Weber to let him know which shift you are interested in helping with.  Bill Weber:  815-675-3306
