ShortStop

Fourth Wednesdays

The Shortstop shelter is a transitional shelter for young adults located just feet from Hillside’s front door. On the fourth Wednesday of every month, we gather in the church kitchen to prepare a meal to deliver its 12 residents. We provide the ingredients, but we need your help to transform them into a delicious meal!

Every second Sunday, our church provides sandwiches for the homeless parishioners of the Outdoor Church of Cambridge. We ask that adults bring ingredients to worship for our youth to transform into sandwiches and then bless before sending them off.
