We open our doors.
We extend hospitality to our neighbors.
We save lives.
Here is how we do it.
Anyone who needs a safe and warm place to sleep gathers at the Police Station in Mt. Kisco by 9:00 each evening. There they are met by the ESP bus and one of our overnight supervisors who transports the group to the congregation which is hosting the shelter that week.
When the group arrives at the location where the shelter is hosted for that week, volunteers from the congregation greet them with a hot meal and a room in which to sleep. Coffee and a breakfast bag is provided in the morning. A volunteer from the congregation also spends the night and is available to assist our staff person in the event of an emergency.
By 6:30 the next morning, the group is up and on the bus to return to the Mt. Kisco Police Station.
Here is a brief video made by Ricky Flores of the Journal News about the work we do.
