Shelter Sunday is a special day each year when community volunteers go door to door collecting donations to support local homeless shelters, emergency housing, and survival services. The funds raised on this one day help hundreds of homeless individuals and families obtain essential services. Last year, we raised over $50,000 in Northampton, and this year’s goal is to once again raise $50,000 by enlisting 100 volunteers to canvass the entire city of Northampton.

All of the homeless shelters are full throughout the year, and the waiting lists are long. However, Northampton has shown its commitment to building a stronger community by helping those with the most need.

The Shelter Sunday Coalition consists of six local organizations that serve the homeless. Proceeds directly benefit the individuals and families that these organizations serve. More information on these agencies can be found on the Participating Agencies page of this website.  Each of these organizations is committed to helping the homeless in our community.

With your help, we will continue to meet the needs of our neighbors in need. Thank you for your support!
