The most impactful statement came from Nina Moseley who told the sad story of an individual who recently died from a tent fire on a cold night. She said that this death and many others could be avoided if our area homeless chose to take advantage of the many resources available to them.

Volunteer Orientations on Saturdays at 10 am - no appointment needed

If you and your family or organization would like to volunteer to help Wayside's homeless clients, drop by Hotel Louisville any Saturday at 10 am for an initial orientation visit. You'll watch a short video, do a little paperwork, let us get a copy of your ID, and you can choose your favorite volunteer activities. Then, just call 24 hours in advance of any activity and you'll be added to the calendar.
Questions? Call Tracy at (812) 251-6907.  Hotel Louisville is located at 120 West Broadway, 40202
Our Good Samaritan Patrol will be traveling the city to offer supplies to homeless individuals on the streets to help them survive the cold. Please help us gather jackets, blankets, hats, gloves and hand warmers.  Supplies can be dropped off at the Shelter or Hotel Louisville.
