Night Stay Program
The Night Stay Program enables congregations located anywhere in Suffolk to open their facilities and provide food and shelter for individuals or families who would normally spend their nights sleeping on the streets, in cars or perhaps in empty buildings or the woods. The site of CNSP rotates among host churches on a weekly basis.
Each scheduled week of CNSP one church location provides shelter, meals, resources, security and fellowship to those experiencing homelessness. Transportation to and from the host location will be provided at a centralized downtown location. Doors are open from 6:30 PM to 7:00 AM. All services are provided by volunteers.
Overnight shelter, meals, safety, prayer and fellowship will be provided to individuals and families during winter months. Shelter opens at 6:30 pm. Doors close at 9:00 pm unless you have made prior provisions with the host church. Shelter closes at 7:00 am daily.
For those without a vehicle, transportation to the host church will be provided from the Suffolk Seaboard Train Museum, 326 N. Main St. Bus leaves for Host location at 6:30 every evening. Homeless with cars welcomed. Must meet nightly at intake location.
We are unable to provide these services to sex offenders or individuals with alcohol or drugs in their system.
Contact Cheryl Griffin, Night Stay Coordinator at 757-286-9126 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
CAPS reserves the right to accept or reject a guest from loading the bus or entering a host church location.
