Description: Dayspring Center operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Families seeking assistance at our emergency shelter are typically at a crisis stage, and require the compassionate care and support of our case management team. While the bare necessities of food, clothing and shelter are of critical importance to Dayspring residents, we realize we have to do more to break the cycle of homelessness. At Dayspring, we provide families devastated by homelessness the tools and resources they need to become an independent family again. With this goal in mind, Dayspring's experienced case managers work with each family to develop a plan to help them address the underlying issues of their homelessness. When families are stabilized and ready to leave the emergency shelter facility, our services continue through the Follow-up Case Management program.
After 27 years, Dayspring Center still remains one of the few emergency shelters that can address the emergency and supportive needs of an entire family, including children of all ages, regardless of race, creed or circumstance. During a family's 45-60 day stay at Dayspring Center, providing the basics (nutritious meals, clothing and safe shelter) is important, but it is not enough to help families overcome their homelessness, permanently. It is our goal at Dayspring to empower homeless families an their children with the skills, resources and resolve to effect permanent change and achieve their goals for healthy family, independent living.
