Cold Weather Shelter

What would you or your grandchildren do in freezing weather with no home? Where do homeless families in Redlands sleep when it's raining?

From December through March when the temperature is below 40 degrees or there is a chance of rain, the Redlands Cold Weather Shelter is open. Volunteers are needed for shifts of only a few hours, not all night, from 7:30 pm to 7:30 am.

The Redlands Cold Weather Shelter needs volunteers. Could you please help with a 3 hour shift, NOT ALL NIGHT, just 2 evenings this winter?

When you are toasty warm in your own bed in your cozy home, think about the Redlands Cold Weather Shelter and how you can help homeless families with just 2-4 hours of your time, only 2 evenings this Winter. For info, please contact Mimi Barre Mimi@MimisWord.com 909-792-4967

Never Alone program in need of volunteers

A local Redlands community program, created to assist the elderly, is getting a helping hand from students in the Social Work program at Cal State San Bernardino. The Never Alone Project was established in 2001 to address the problems faced by many elderly within the community and foster a better connection with others.

The Never Alone program was created in 2001 as a project of the Redlands Police Department, to connect with seniors in the community. Volunteers were recruited to call and check on the welfare of homebound senior citizens. If they were unable to connect with them, a police officer would be dispatched to check on the senior citizen. According to the City of Redlands website, if those seniors in need of assistance were not contacted or found within 24 hours, “half of those could suffer serious injury or death.” In 2006 alone, Redlands police responded to more than 130 reports of missing senior citizens, proving how valuable this program is to those individuals and the community in general.

The Never Alone Project has evolved from its original form and is now run by the City of Redlands Quality of Life Department. It covers the communities of Redlands, Highland, Loma Linda, Yucaipa, and Mentone. The program uses volunteers to routinely call and establish a connection with the senior citizens in the community. These volunteers check in on the seniors to verify their health and safety, but they also try to become a friend, someone that seniors can look forward to speaking with on a weekly basis. In situations where someone may be in need of help or they fail to answer the phone call, a police officer is dispatched to check on their status.

Students from the Cal State San Bernardino Social Work program are getting involved in order to gather more support for the project. The Never Alone Project relies entirely on volunteer support, and they are always in need of anyone who may be interested in participating in the program.

Questioning if being a volunteer is for you? Put yourself in the senior’s shoes; if you were all alone and had no family members to contact, would you like someone to take the time to call you and make sure everything was OK? Of course you would! So visit the Redlands Community Senior Center at 111 W. Lugonia Ave, or call (909) 798-7579 for information or to become a volunteer.
