Austin's Place Emergency Women's Shelter
We provide overnight emergency shelter for single women during the winter months. Our season for this year (our 9th season of providing shelter) is January 1 - February 29, 2016. Ovenight volunteers are needed to stay with our women. Two overnight volunteers are needed per night. We provide training to our volunteers.
Our shelter welcomes any woman who needs shelter for the night. We have the capacity to house up to 8 women. The women check in at Courage Connection for a screening process and are transported by our volunteers to Austin's Place, which is housed within First United Methodist Church, downtown Champaign.
