Volunteers are being sought to help staff the new Brighter Days Housing homeless shelter, which is under construction on the east side of Columbus.

The Ecumenical Assembly of Bartholomew County — Love Chapel is seeking to sign up 200 volunteers to help at the facility prior to its opening around Labor Day.

Brighter Days will be an around-the-clock, every-day-of-the-year transition and emergency housing facility at 421 S. Mapleton St. that will provide for about 20 men and 16 women. Chaplains, in-take coordinators, hospitality providers and cleaning support are some of the volunteer opportunities.

If interested in volunteering at the new facility, contact Kathy Thompson by email at volunteer@columbuslove chapel.com.

Introductory training sessions are being conducted for those interested in volunteering.
