HOUSING: Between the church and the DMCW houses there's lots of floor space for folks to occupy... the Church has no shower facilities and very limited toilet facilities. Showers will be available at the DMCW houses. Trinity Meth. Ch. is 3 blocks north of the DMCW. All are welcome. If you know you’re coming... it would be great if you would let us know so we can have some idea of the # of people.
NEED A BED? If you need a bed or have other needs beyond floor space, let us know!
