    Worst shelter out there. While it is a very nice building it is run like a prison camp and God for bid you breathe wrong you’ll get a warning These people lie to you The female caseworker they have there is an untrained incompetent unlicensed worker who shouldn’t be allowed around anybody in need of any type of services You are not allowed to practice any type of religious or spiritual beliefs unless it aligns with their religious affiliation Psychologically the case manager the female case manager will do everything in her power to bring you down to make herself feel better about herself. Everyone is lumped into one category & one category only there is no give on anything Rules are rules they state! Even at that the rules are beyond ludicrous and make no sense You are forced to give up 75% of your income to a savings account that you do get back they however do not take into consideration any type of bills or expenses that you have And the list goes on and on do yourself a favor and find a shelter elsewhere this is not a good place to be It is very harmful to people who are already down and out None of the people that work at this place are trained certified or licensed to do this type of work and this is something the female caseworker brags about she has no degree I’m sorry when you’re dealing with homeless people who are already in a terrible emotional state you do not have a caseworker that makes the situation even worse and that’s what happens at this place Don’t go.

Description: Intake: Call our office during regular business hours: Mondays through Fridays 8:30 to 4:30pm. We are a dry shelter. We accept men, women, and children for short-term shelter, generally around 30 days up to a maximum of 90 days.

St. Luke's Guesthouse provides Christian hospitality to those in need of temporary shelter. We are here to provide a quiet place to stay while guests work on their problems, especially getting into permanent housing. Since very simple beginnings as a private effort in March of 2013 we are now in the process of becoming a non-profit public charity (501c3). With community support and funding we will be able to expand our services and better meet the needs of the homeless in our area.

We are the only homeless shelter in southern Worcester County. Each night there are dozens of men, women, and children out on the streets, in great need. Sadly, we often get calls asking for help but are forced to turn people away.  We hope that with expanded services and greater community involvement  we can more effectively serve those in need. No human being should be without decent shelter–it is one of the most basic human rights.

Whom Do We Serve?:  The Guesthouse is open to anyone in need of temporary shelter as long as they are willing to abstain from the use of drugs and alcohol and follow commonsense household rules.


Volunteers Requests by St. Luke's Guesthouse: We do not currently accept volunteers.


Donation Requests by St. Luke's Guesthouse: Financial donations are our primary need to help with staff salaries and other expenses.
