South Suburban PADS is gearing up for its Summer Interim Housing Shelter Season for homeless persons.
The shelter operates from May 1 through Sept. 30 each year. The program is a way for new volunteers to become acquainted with the PADS program.
PADS need volunteers to supervise the site and guests, to complete paperwork, and to provide meals for four hours per month. Training sessions are scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, April 13 and 7 p.m. Thursday, April 25. Volunteers only need to attend one session. Both will be held at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 667 W. 8th St. in Chicago Heights.
