Shelter & Services

Our Offerings

Each day we operate a safe overnight shelter, which provides an evening snack, breakfast and connection with support services, including mental health, housing, healthcare, recovery and education.


The shelter opens nightly at 7:00 p.m. and closes each morning at 7:00 a.m.


The shelter is staffed with trained site coordinators, case managers and volunteers. Mental health professionals and volunteer advocates are available to assist guests with basic needs and to connect them with additional services. Case management staff is currently available during business hours, M-Th, 9am-4pm and every night from 7 pm-9:30pm.
