Description: The Interfaith Emergency Shelter provides for single women, women with children and families that are homeless. In the women's shelter, the ladies share rooms and bathroom facilities. Living area, kitchen and laundry rooms also provide common areas. Residents are required to do daily chores and attend devotions Monday thru Friday each morning with the staff. At 8:30am each morning during the week, residents leave for the day to go to work or search for a job.
In the family shelter, married couples and children have a room and bathroom to themselves, and share a common kitchen area. Also on property is the Learning Center, where residents attend bible study, parenting, budgeting and other life-skill classes.
A Case Manager meets with residents each week to determine their needs and barriers so that we can better equip them for a brighter future, as well as providing referrals for services offered in the community.  Our goal, is to provide a safe, comfortable haven for the residents so they have an opportunity to save money and get back on their feet as soon as possible. Interfaith provides food, hygiene and clothing as needed to each resident. Dinner is provided by local churches and organizations each night, that include a time of fellowship and sharing. Although strict rules and boundaries are enforced for the residents, they are primarily safety issues.
