Emergency Shelter


Our Emergency Shelter Network was a program that provides emergency, overnight shelter on a rotating basis at various church locations. Due to the pandemic, the church shelters are closed, and guests have been provided with hotel rooms to self-isolate and stay safe. Our case managers work closely with shelter guests to determine the next steps for their success (e.g., housing assistance, mental health services, etc.).
