Winter Shelter Week
 

Community of Faith Mission (COFM) is a faith-based, non-governmental low barrier emergency shelter program which, through the efforts of volunteers and staff, provides shelter and food on a weekly basis from November through March for men, women, and families who are homeless in the greater Williamsburg, Virginia area. COFM serves as a bridge between living unsheltered and finding permanent housing.
    Bruton Parish will be joining eighteen other church communities in our area to provide shelter for the entire eighteen weeks that COFM operates. Our week is February 9-16, 2020, and there are many ways that you can contribute to this important ministry. We'll need volunteers to assist with checking in guests and others to prepare and serve meals. A group of parishioners who serve on the Bruton steering committee will start meeting in October to plan our shelter week. Online volunteer registration will open in November.
    Please mark your calendars now for the week of February 9 and be thinking about how you would like to help. You'll be hearing more details from us very soon!  If you have any questions about the Winter Shelter, please email COFM@brutonparish.org.
