Cold Weather Shelter Opens Nov. 15th, Volunteers & Supplies Welcome

ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) –My Father’s House Cold Weather Shelter opens Monday, November 15th! My Father’s House provides temporary housing for the homeless and displaced.

All volunteers have had their background checked. Most, if not all are Christians and are here to serve God.

We provide a warm, safe place to sleep and physically and spiritually feed those in need.

Nightly check-in: 5-8PM, check-out: 7AM. Location: 4635 Hwy 41 N, Springfield (Old Armory Building).

This is not just for the homeless.

Services Provided

All guests at My Father’s House are checked in each night beginning at 5:00 pm. The first night we do run a check on the National Sex Offender’s Registry.

No one on the registry is allowed to stay at the shelter. We also follow all guidelines for COVID-19.

There are people out there who might have inadequate heating; their power or water might have been cut off; they are living out of their car or moving from relative to relative.

Guests are provided a hot meal that is prepared and served by our volunteers. A nightly devotional follows the meals and then the guests are given time to relax or take a shower before preparing for bed.

Guests are awakened at 6:00 a.m. to prepare to leave for the day. Breakfast is prepared and served by our volunteers. Some mornings it may be something that they can carry with them, either hot or cold.

Volunteers are always needed.

My Fathers House is in need of overnight volunteers 2-3 nights per week, $40 per night pay to volunteers. Must be able to pass a background check. Contact: 615-992-1547

Training of the volunteers is essential and mandatory. We may provide more during the season if necessary.
