Program Support


Winter Warming Shelter

Our shelter is part of a network of emergency shelters that coordinate together to provide housing for one of St. Louis' most vulnerable populations. Our Shelter is open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from November-March when the temperature is at 20°F OR 25°F with precipitation (i.e. snow, rain, sleet, etc.).

A typical shift might include:

  • registering and signing in guests

  • escorting guests to cots

  • setting up and serving hot meals

  • socializing with guests

We will contact you by 4pm the day prior to your shift with details regarding the Shelter's status.

If you would like to learn more about volunteering at our shelter, please contact us at our Winter Warming Volunteer Line at (314) 635-8649, or call our office at (314) 772-9002, or email us at acstl.vista@gmail.com.

If you would like to register to volunteer for this coming season, please sign up below. Once you have completed registering, you will be prompted to sign up for specific volunteer shifts.

AmeriCorps St. Louis has operated out of 1315 Ann Avenue for over 25 years. With that comes the constant need for building upkeep and renovations.
