For more than a century, whenever someone has knocked on our shelter’s door, all we ask were just two questions: “What’s your name?” and “Are you hungry?”
Then, over a shared meal, our dedicated and talented staff help each homeless individual start to map out a path for “What’s next?”
Last year, 1,018 individuals knocked on our Shelter’s door, who stayed with us for over 38,005 nights, and were served over 71,992 meals.
Each individual is offered a full range of professional case management services, without consideration of ability to pay, including healthcare, behavioral health counseling, addiction treatment, financial assistance – and last year we were able to help 153 previously homeless individuals obtain housing.
We are keenly aware that behind each of those stark numbers is a very personal story.
