SHIP

The Self-Help Interfaith Program, supported by about 18 churches in northwest Orange County, provides year-round shelter, food, and counseling for up to 8 homeless employable single adults.   It affords those individuals the opportunity to find employment and save enough money to rent their own place to live.  Twice each year, for a two-week period, CUMC offers guests temporary sleeping quarters and provides breakfast, a self-prepared sack lunch, and a hot dinner. Specific help opportunities for church members include providing, preparing or serving meals, supplying paper goods, set up and take-down before and after the two-week stay, staying overnight, joining the guests for their evening meal, kitchen cleanup after guests leave for their next host-church, or volunteering as a Personal Advisor.
