Each year, Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center sponsors a Cold Weather Shelter during the winter months to provide short-term shelter for those in need in Howard County. Faith congregations sign up to “host” each week of the shelter, which typically operates from late November through the beginning of April. Glen Mar has been a host congregation each year since the shelter opened in 2004.
