Bucks County, PA
About the Organization: Code Blue, or the Coalition to Shelter and Support the Homeless, provides emergency shelter to homeless individuals in Bucks County on very cold nights.
DPC Engagement: Doylestown Presbyterian Church serves as a host site for Code Blue one month a year, as well as provides financial support to the organization. In 2014, the shelter was open 75 different nights and 2 days, and 40 guests came throughout the winter. All members of the congregation are encouraged to volunteer to assist with the shelter in nights it is in operation or help prepare meals for guests in advance. More information on how to volunteer is available on the "Serve Locally" page in the mission section of the church website in the fall and winter months.
