Ways to help

Sunday Dinners

For individuals or groups interested in preparing meals for our shelter clients, LSA offers a bi-monthly opportunity to feed those experiencing homelessness. The dinners are typically on Sunday and can be served anywhere between 4-6pm. This opportunity is open to both individuals and groups!

Supervised Play Time for Children

It’s rewarding for both our volunteers and our children when a group of community members provide supervised play times for the homeless children who reside in our shelters so parents/caregivers can participate in enrichment activities or simply take a break.
