Volunteers are needed to host a Juneteenth Celebration on Sunday, June 19th at New Directions Shelter. Suggested ideas include fun outdoor games and activities for adults and children. We are also looking for a sponsor to provide lunch for the day.

The shelter has a wonderful yard to host the event. In case of rain, the event can be moved inside. Expect 15-20 shelter guests to attend.

Volunteers will need to plan the activities and provide all needed supplies. Suggested time for the event would be early afternoon (starting around 1:00pm) or closer to dinner time (starting between 5:00pm-6:00pm) and should last for about 2 hours.

To volunteer, contact Missy Reams at mreams@bidwellriverside.org or by phone at 515-244-6251 option 5.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. It is estimated that at least 1 in 5 Americans are affected by mental illness every year.

For those experiencing homelessness, this rate goes up significantly. In 2015, an assessment by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) found that 45% of people who are experiencing homelessness in the United States have a mental illness.

Raising awareness will help break the stigma and will lead to greater acceptance in our community.
