Description: Since 2001 YCMI has been providing shelter and meals for homeless individuals and families with an emphasis on emergency shelters. Building upon our original foundation for providing basic shelter, we have expanded to include supportive services through community and other collaborations as well as some in-house support. We have also converted to Interim Shelter beds allowing for extended stay to accommodate the stability that is needed. In order to produce rapid housing results, we have increased our outreach to community and other partners who are adding to our availability of wrap around services.
