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.
Very grateful to the Unilever employees who gave their time for a Day of Service at Spooner House on October 12, 2016. They helped out with a wide array of tasks, from planting and mulching outside Spooner House to deep cleaning the carpets and stairs. Volunteers helped with lunch and in the food bank, cleaning around the facility and the kids' play room and even helped decorate the house for Halloween too, plus offered some painting skills. Many thanks for all their hard work and effort!
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.

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

A big thank you goes out to over 60 Edgewell Personal Care employees who volunteered their time at Spooner House on Friday, October 21. The volunteers spent all morning cleaning and sanitizing the dorms and bathrooms of the shelter, organizing the food bank, raking leaves, and cleaning the whole facility top to bottom. A big thank you goes out to this energetic group for their service, 3 years in a row!
Thank you so much to 9 year old Sam, founder of Sam's Kids, who collected 1440 lbs of food over the weekend of October 8th and 9th! He stood outside Adams Hometown Markets in Shelton from 9-2 both days, passing out Spooner House wish lists and collecting items from grocery shoppers on the way out, even in the rain. This is a wonderful boost for the shelves at Spooner House at a time when our shelves could really use it. Great job Sam!!
