FPL Partnership with the City of Lawrence for Winter Emergency Shelter for Families

FPL Partners with the City’s Winter Emergency Shelter


FPL is partnering with The City of Lawrence to provide safe shelter for families through the winter months. The Winter Emergency Shelter (WES) is a program of the City of Lawrence to provide overnight shelter to people who need a warm place to sleep on nights forecasted to be below 35 degrees F.
FPL is working with our congregational network to provide family sites for overnight shelter so that kids don’t have to sleep on a gym floor in a group shelter setting.

Volunteers are vital to this plan! Can you host some overnights through the winter? You can choose dates and SIGN UP HERE to Volunteer for WES

FPL has a new online training to better serve our guests.  Please click HERE for on line Volunteer Training

Thank you for being willing to provide hospitality and warmth!
