CBE Respite Shelter
May 19 @ 6:30 pm - June 27 @ 6:30 am
The CBE Respite Bed Shelter, in partnership with CAMBA- a well-established Brooklyn-based social service agency– will be open from Sunday, May 19 through Thursday June 27. We turn the CBE Rotunda into a safe overnight space for @ 12 male guests to sleep and share a meal. Last year, 170 volunteers (mostly from CBE) provided food and a safe environment each night over a six week period. Volunteering at the CBE Shelter provides an opportunity to “give-back” to the Brooklyn community in a much-needed service. Volunteers may sign up to prepare, bring and serve dinner, bring a dessert or stay overnight. This is a unique opportunity for Tikkun Olam—for individuals, families, teens looking for community service or groups of friends to volunteer and share CBE hospitality.
