ECHOS Winter Shelter Volunteer Training

January 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Elizabethtown Community Housing & Outreach Services (ECHOS) is seeking 200 community members willing to volunteer 2-4 times a month this season (December 7 – April 2). Interested individuals can visit echoslancaster.org/get-involved for more information or contact 717-361-0740 or email office@echoslancaster.org to sign up. First time volunteers need to attend one training session to meet the staff, learn about volunteer requirements, and become families with the inter-workings of the shelter. ECHOS will be following CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of our guests and volunteers.

It takes approximately 70 volunteers a week to run our winter shelter. Our shelter provides a warm, dry, safe place for people connected with the Elizabethtown, Bainbridge, Rheems, Mount Joy, Marietta and Maytown areas to sleep, a hot, nutritious dinner, breakfast and a to-go lunch. Last year, we had over 60 guests utilize the shelter. Without volunteer support, these guests would not have had a place to stay.
