CARITAS stands for Congregations Around Richmond Involved to Assure Shelter.  By partnering with local churches, synagogues, and other houses of faith, CARITAS provides housing for homeless men, women and children in the Richmond metropolitan area.

Welborne was one of the founding churches of CARITAS, and continues to host homeless guests for two weeks out of every year through this program.  During those weeks, guests sleep in Nave Hall, we supply meals, provide laundry services, and transport guests to showers at the YMCA. There are many ways to serve during our weeks of hosting CARITAS each fall and spring.

The next week we host CARITAS will be April 1-8, 2017.  We are currently signing up people to serve!  Interested in more information?  Complete the form below, or visit our Sign Up Genius for CARITAS volunteers here, or Sign Up Genius for Donation Items here:
