The Sheltering Tree is a non-denominational civic organization created by
the FCFAC to provide cold-weather shelter during the many nights per year
that the temperature drops below 40 degrees in Flagler County. Over the 9
years the shelter has been in operation, the number of nights below 40
degrees has varied from 9 to 40.
First United Methodist Church of Bunnell currently leases space in their fellowship
hall each Nov-March to FCFAC for the cold-weather shelter. The shelter facility is open
to anyone who has no place to sleep, inadequate heat or is in need of comfort from the harsh
weather. The Sheltering Tree program serves meals, distributes clothing, provides "grace bags" filled with toiletries and creates a warm welcoming, safe environment to get a sound nights sleep.
The Sheltering Tree facility can accommodate between 30-35 people. Open from 6 pm to 7 am, the shelter is a short respite from the cold nights that many of our homeless population endure.
WE ARE ONLY ABLE TO ASSIST FLAGLER COUNTY RESIDENTS.
