Emergency Shelter Programs

Do not judge by appearances; a rich heart may be under a poor coat.

– Scottish Proverb

With a helping hand, our clients can start rebuilding.  We see tears of frustration and desperation daily, but also tears of joy.  There are women and men that come into our shelters with nowhere else to turn, having come out of incarceration or other dangerous situations.  But they slowly create their own triumphs: they get a job, they work with our case managers, they grow and find stability.  Our clients overcome addictions and mental health issues, they escape domestic violence – they better themselves.
