Become a Member
CAPS is a coalition of churches and Christian organizations who jointly fund and direct CAPS. Member churches or organizations contribute financially to CAPS, act as members of the Board, provide volunteers, and collaborate with CAPS to share information and resources. You can make a difference today by joining forces with CAPS to bring real relief to Suffolk residents in need.
Night Stay Opportunities
The CAPS Night Stay Program gives people experiencing homelessness a safe and warm place to spend the night during the cold winter months. There are a couple of ways you can get involved.
Become a Host Church
Host churches provide space for sleeping, eating and programs. They coordinate volunteers who prepare food, have fellowship events, provide security and do set up and clean up. A mobile shower unit is available for churches who do not have shower facilities.
Become a Partner
If your church is unable to host Night Stay at your location, you can partner with another church to provide volunteers, food, and help.
A year and a half later, Gary ran into a night stay volunteer at the restaurant where he worked. He remembered her from his stay at her church and asked if he could give her a hug. Gary had found a job and secured a stable home and had great pride in how far God had brought him.
