Shelter House

Shelter House

Shelter House is much more than a roof and a bedIn addition to our roof and beds, we focus on programs and supports that help hundreds of men, women and children each year to get back on their feet.  We keep children in school, help men and women get back to work, assist the disabled and elderly to access benefits and health care and move individuals and families into their own homes.  Simply put, we help people move beyond homelessness.


Drop-In Service Hours:
–  Monday – Friday 1-4PM
–  Saturday – Sunday 8-10AM
Sign-up for admission to shelter begins daily at 6:00PM. You must be present to sign-up.
