Thank you so much for considering volunteering with CARITAS! WEAG has been hosting CARITAS guests for a couple of decades now and we want to continue to offer our guests a warm and welcoming experience while they are with us.
CARITAS will be transitioning to a new program in the next couple of years and will have their own building to host their guests. They have broken ground on their new building but won’t be ready to house people for another year or two. So we have one or two more years to welcome our guests with open arms!
This is also a great opportunity to participate in Lift Up RVA, a church wide iniative to serve our local community. Pastor Shane has been mentioning the event in his recent sermons and CARITAS is a great way to kick off the summer long event.
This year we will be hosting single women for 2 weeks in June. We will have about 40 guests from June 16th to June 30th.
There are lots of ways to get involved that require little to no time commitment or you can spend a whole evening with the guests. You can sign up to donate food, serve dinner, pack lunches, do laundry or even spend the night at the church.
