Area Congregations Together
Our Mission
Spooner House is operated by Area Congregations Together, Inc. with the mission of providing food, shelter and support services to people in need. All of our energies are devoted to helping our clients establish a self-sufficient living situation. We recognize the dignity of our clients, we give them our respect and we deliver our services without proselytizing.
Volunteer Opportunity: 
Prepare an evening meal for Spooner House residents
Sign up for an "Open Night"! Spooner House has a great crew of community groups and area congregations that diligently prepare the evening meal on the same day each month. There are some dates though that do not have a consistent group that prepares the meal and such, are "Open Nights" that we look to fill. The volunteer opportunity would include: preparing a menu, bringing in the food, and then using our kitchen to prepare and serve the dinner meal for our residents (30-40 people).

Interested? Contact Kate at kpipa@actspooner.org or (203) 225-0453 x 102.

We are looking to fill the following dates:
