COVID-19 Updates

At House of Friendship, we are committed to continuing to serve our community in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic in a way that will also take into account best practices, as recommended by public health officials, to ensure the safety of everyone.

Knowing that the current situation is ever-evolving, we will be constantly reassessing the situation and providing regular updates about our services, as well as proactive measures we are taking to protect staff, program participants, and the community as a whole.


* face to face requires adherence to COVID protocols, including physical distancing and use of PPE.


We have limited volunteer positions available at this time. To see our current opportunities, please visit

We are currently accepting donation of items to support our Shelter program during limited hours and by appointment only. Please visit to learn more.


The population we support at House of Friendship who are struggling with homelessness, hunger and living on low income will be affected in greater ways during this pandemic.  Will you consider an extra gift today, to help those who are facing increased needs at this time?  Some of our supporters may not be able to give at this time, as they too are impacted by a loss of income.  Thank you for your extra gift during this difficult time!
