GUEST program begins its second season Monday night

PLEASE NOTE: After this article was published, the Gazette-Journal was informed that the shelter will not be prepared to open Monday night for a variety of reasons, but will open soon.

The GUEST program—Gloucester’s United Emergency Shelter Team—is preparing to open the shelter Monday night for the first night of its second season at Bethany United Methodist Church, Gloucester Point.

The shelter will open at 7 p.m. and remain open through 7 o’clock each morning through March 31, 2015 for members of the community in need. Breakfast and dinner will be provided to the guests, courtesy of the host sites.
In its first season, which ran from this past January through March, the program served 30 people.

“The GUEST organization only happens by a community effort,” said team spokesperson Debra Jo Jenkins. “Some may see all the churches, but the type of faith you have doesn’t matter. It takes the whole community to make this work.”
