Hope for the Journey Home is housed at Guardian Angels Church in Oakdale and serves as a shelter for homeless families in the Washington County area. The program is designed to provide shelter from one to about 13 nights, with kids bused to their usual schools each weekday morning and parents getting help finding work and housing through a day resource center at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi, a partner in the effort.
As partners in the effort to provide shelter to those in need, Memorial Lutheran Church not only provides financial assistance to this program but also recruits volunteers to serve with supervision and meal preparation on a quarterly basis.

Look for volunteer needs on the main page of memoriallutheran.org, or in the church fellowship hall, as they become available.
