Advocates for Homeless & Those in Need (AHTN) is a Bucks County interfaith nonprofit that serves the homeless and those in need by providing year-long access to emergency shelter, food and other life-sustaining services, with dignity and compassion. December 1st is Giving Tuesday and it coincides with the start of our Code Blue season. AHTN has four churches that open their doors to the homeless guests when the temperature drops to 26 degrees or below, including wind chill. AHTN provides transportation to and from the churches; give the homeless guests a cot and bedding so they can sleep in a warm church and get out of the cold. The church feeds them a dinner and breakfast the next morning. Funds are needed for bus maintenance, gas and insurance; sleeping bags, blankets, pillows and incidentals.
