Emergency Shelter Partnership

The Emergency Shelter Partnership is a coalition of more than 20 congregations and community groups working together to provide emergency shelter during the coldest five months of the year. Normally, BPC hosts the shelter for two weeks each winter.  We will be asking for volunteers to help provide meals and be the overnight volunteer to work with the ESP staff person for the nights we host the shelter.

In addition to providing a safe and warm place to sleep, BPC volunteers provide a meal each evening and something for breakfast each day that we host the shelter.

This year, due to COVID restrictions, the guests will be housed at two Mt. Kisco churches and we will help provide food.

For additional information please email Elyssa Michaels.

St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Mt. Kisco transformed their fellowship hall into an Emergency shelter. The dividers allow the guests to stay safe and socially distant.

BPC members provided a hot, nutritious dinner, breakfast, and snacks for the guests.

The cots have been a new addition this year.
