Shelter the Homeless
  • Your Help is Needed to Support the Homeless


    The Van Buren Center is a shelter for the homeless in Columbus that was opened in the summer of 2014 by the Community Shelter Board. 

    Community Shelter Board’s network of shelter and housing programs served 12,000 people last year.

    Van Buren Center, our community’s largest emergency shelter. serves hundreds of people experiencing homelessness every day.  They need help to stock the shelves with the simple things we all use each day to stay safe, clean and warm. 


    WITH YOUR HELP, the Social Concerns Ministry plans to support the Van Buren Center.


    We will be collecting hygiene items and assembling Hygiene Kits for people entering the shelter. 


    Please consider donating the items needed and/or helping to assemble the kits.


    The items that are needed are:


    Deodorant (2 oz. size) 

    Shaving Cream (6 oz. size)

    Tampons  (50 count)



    Combs & Brushes

    Nail Clippers (small & large) 

    Hotel Toiletries

    Tooth Brushes & Tooth Paste

    Bars of Soap






    With the help of the Holy Spirit and all hands on deck, we can make a significant difference.  


    If you would like to volunteer to help assemble the kits please contact Suanne Gettings at or call at 614-855-1400, Ext. 1017.
