The Shelter operates yearly, December 1 - April 1 and is open to women, without dependents, ages 18 years of age and older. It offers 20 emergency shelter beds and hope.

VOLUNTEER

Like 2019, we would love to ask you to volunteer at the winter shelter, but, due to COVID restrictions, our staff will likely be the only women entering the shelter with the residents. But, we invite you to pray with us as we serve and love these precious women.

HISTORY

Through a collaborative effort of several churches and community partners, in February 2020, High Point's first Winter Women's Shelter opened on the campus of West End Ministries. West End Ministries is one of Green Street's community partners. West End Ministries Women's Winter Shelter was birthed by prayer after the need became apparent. With West End's Leslie's House remaining consistently full, concerned citizens gathered, raised necessary funds, arranged volunteers and operational needs.
