Have you been wanting to get involved with Code Purple but haven’t made the plunge yet?

Now is the TIME! We are more than halfway through the season. Don’t delay any longer.

Please click here –Volunteer Needs – if you want more information on the various ways to serve.

We have a handy tool for online volunteer sign up. You can choose the town, days and spots where you would like to help. They can all be found here:Volunteer Sign Up Calendar

We need your help to finish the season well. We have lost a few volunteers and need some replacements. Most towns have many individuals serving multiple days. Let’s help them out!

Please come in one night for dinner and get to know our ministry. You won’t be disappointed.

No need to worry about being left alone to figure it all out. We will train you on the job alongside a seasoned volunteer.



Cape Region: Open 1/31 & 2/1 Closed Sunday 2/2- Tuesday 2/4

The Cape Region Site will be open tonight Friday 1/31 and tomorrow night Saturday 2/1.

The Cape Region Site will then be closed Sunday 2/2 – Tuesday 2/4.

Our guests can utilize any of our other 8 sites that are open each night regardless of temps. List of Code Purple Sussex Shelters

Cape Region Shelter Open!!

We are exciting that our site in Lewes has been open for three nights now! The community came out and performed a miracle. A shelter from shell to completely usable in less than 12 hours. We can not express how thankful we are to everyone that came out and helped. Check out the incredible video from The Cape Gazette here Opening of Code Purple at Troop 7


We will be open through the night of Monday, January 27th and will have further updates this weekend.

Please go to the calendar and sign up to help with either dinner, intake, overnight, or morning clean up. Cape Region Volunteer Calendar.

We need the community to continue to support the shelter in order to make a difference in our guests lives!

We will update the nights that we are open on our website, Facebook, and email blasts. Keep an eye out for our announcements!
