We are a small faith-based shelter serving women and children. We provide (long-term) transitional housing. We require guests to work if they are able. The shelter is very homelike, peaceful, and comfortable. We are a drug, alcohol, and smoke-free environment. The length of a guest's stay is determined via weekly meetings to evaluate that guest's: efforts to procure permanent housing and employment; respect for the community; and success.

The shelter provides shared rooms, free laundry, and 3 meals daily. We emphasize the building of community within the shelter, so that both guests and staff create a loving family. To this end, we hold weekly group meetings and eat dinner together 5 nights per week.
