Q: I have blankets, clothing, and toys that I would like to donate to the rotating shelter. Who do I talk to about that and where can I donate them?
A: Unfortunately we do not have the facilities to be able to handle donations such as clothing, blankets, and toys. We would recommend that you contact Clothing, Inc at (989) 264-2510. They have a clothing closet that will take donations. Toys can be donated to either the Salvation Army or Good Will. If the rotating shelter needs donations we will post it on our website.
Q: I signed up to volunteer, but I can't make my shift
A: Call ICRH at (989)400-4126 and let us know as soon as possible.
Q. Why is the shelter only open for overnight stays from October to April?
A: Since we are a rotational shelter that relies on churches to host us in the evenings, we are not able to be open year-round considering the number of churches in the area.
Q. What is the difference between your seasonal shelter and your summer services?
A.Our seasonal shelter is open from October to April and we allow for overnight stays. Our summer services run from May through September where we are open for five hours a day a few days a week for the homeless to use our shower facility, our laundry facility, and our wifi. To be accepted into the summer program the individual must be referred by a community organization.
