The Path from Shelter to Home,

 for Families, Women & Men

Every year, our housing and shelter programs help hundreds of homeless individuals and families with emergency and transitional housing

In our programs we provide safe shelter, case management, opportunities for participants to develop community and deepen their spiritual connections, assistance with job seeking or entitlement applications, referrals to medical, mental health and substance use services, help to find affordable housing, transportation.

Each program has a unique focus and style, but each seeks to assist persons to overcome obstacles to safe, affordable, and stable permanent housing.
