shelter: a safe, temporary refuge for homeless individuals and families.

A warm bed, a hot meal and clothing.  It sounds so simple, but for many, it's not. Meeting these basic needs can make a lasting difference for the veterans, men, and women who come to us for shelter.  Providing emergency shelter services allows our clients to focus on gainful employment and stable housing, ultimately putting an end to their homelessness. Through supportive services and referrals to community resources, we can help rebuild a foundation for people who thought they were beyond reach.
