Congregations Around Richmond Involved To Assure Shelter: CARITAS
CARITAS was organized in the early 1980's to respond to the huge unmet need for emergency shelter for homeless adults in the cold winter months. With its name derived from the Latin word for charity, today CARITAS is the largest emergency shelter program in our community. Manakin Episcopal Church participates with Epiphany Catholic Church, as part of more than 150 faith communities and about 20,000 volunteers. These volunteers are personally involved in providing help to those less fortunate to provide over 30,000 nights of shelter annually.
If you have any questions about CARITAS or are interested in participating, please contact the church office at 804-794-6401.
