Our Neighbor's Place - Overflow Shelter Schedule

Our Neighbor's Place Overflow Shelter is a community effort to provide safe and warm overnight shelter to men and women who are homeless and have nowhere to go this winter.

The shelter operates on a rotating basis among several downtown Erie churches every two weeks. It opens every night at 7:30 p.m. Guests eat a simple meal, have the opportunity to shower, and are offered chaplain services. Lights out at 10:30 p.m. The shelter closes at 7 a.m. after breakfast.

Below is the schedule for the 2018-19 season. For a printable version, see the document download at the bottom of the page.
