Through a collaborative effort of several churches and community partners, High Point's first Winter Women's Shelter opened on the campus of West End Ministries in February 2020. The Women's Winter Shelter was birthed by prayer after the need became apparent. With Leslie's House remaining consistently full, concerned citizens gathered, raised necessary funds, arranged volunteers and operational needs. When there is a need, a list will be posted below as well as a meal sign-up. If it is easier, you can designate a gift to the Women's Winter Shelter by clicking here and we will shop on your behalf for meals or needs.
The goal of the Women's Winter Shelter is to offer a safe, warm, loving and helpful place to sleep and receive nutrition, encouragement and case management. The women are given a clean bed, three meals and care. Toiletries and other helpful items are provided as well as referrals. 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.
During the 2020-2021 winter shelter, breakfast, lunch and dinner were provided. We humbly asked you to sign up to provide meals during December 1 through April 1 and you responded. Thank you.

We will begin collecting for next winter closer to the opening month and a needs list will be shared here at that time.

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.
