Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest - UUCP Share the Plate


The Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program (I-HELP), a program of Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest, partners with churches and community groups to shelter people experiencing homelessness while I-HELP case managers transition program participants from crisis to stability. LSS I-HELP shelters 30-40 people every night in the cities of Mesa, Surprise, Avondale and Goodyear, and is working to start operations in Glendale this fall. Your support could go towards hygiene products, uniforms for new jobs, transportation assistance, or down payment for a new apartment so I-HELP participants can end their homelessness permanently. LSS I-HELP has several volunteer opportunities available: Prepare hot meals or snack bags for those experiencing homelessness; Serve as an overnight monitor in City of Surprise; Drive I-HELP guests to shelter locations in City of Surprise; Take LSS Emergency Services Vehicles for regular mechanic appointments.
