o to reduce no-shows and create a deeper commitment.
• Grow our volunteer base:
o Handle the volunteer calendar which has to be checked and kept up to date on a daily basis.
o Meet with synagogue members who attend other social action programming to advocate for shelter volunteers;
o Run Shelter trainings to destigmatize the volunteer experience;
o Create relationships with local organizations to create new pools from which shelter volunteers can be gained.

• Partnerships and Advocacy:
o Participate in homeless advocacy programs with similar organizations to enable the synagogue to be more informed on issues related to homelessness in our area;
o Create relationships with local government departments, and other feeder organizations to increase shelter guests to meet our capacity.
o Maintain relationships with the agencies and social workers who assign guests to AC.
• Guests:
