Description: EMERGENCY FAMILY SHELTER

Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen opened its Emergency Family Shelter to house families on a temporary basis in May 1991.We provide one week of emergency shelter for 10 families.  We also offer an Extended Stay Shelter Program, in which Emergency Shelter Residents are selected to stay in our shelter for up to 90 days. Loaves and Fishes Emergency Family Shelter Program/Extended Stay Shelter Program includes private rooms, cafeteria style meals, parenting classes, life skills classes, counseling, clothing vouchers, diapers, items for personal hygiene, and referrals to supporting agencies

Our shelter has a full-time case manager who does individual case management. Our staff is invaluable in supporting, encouraging and assisting families who are under extreme stress and trying to make important decisions regarding the future of their family.

Each family is given intensive social work with regard to goal planning, financial planning, employment skills, educational opportunities, counseling and parenting. Additionally, the program can offer limited assistance with medical care, transportation, clothing vouchers, and referrals to appropriate community resources. Families are also ministered to spiritually in terms of their Church affiliation. Visiting church representatives from Churches who support this program offer our program families much needed support.


KITCHEN

Breakfast (7am, Monday-Friday)
Lunch (11:30am, Saturday)
Dinner (5:00pm, Monday & Wednesday)


Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen serves approximately 4,600 meals to the homeless each month. A hot breakfast is served at 7:00am, Monday through Friday, lunch is served on Saturday at 11:30am and dinner is served on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday evenings at 5pm. In addition to these meals, we also serve lunch and dinner to our emergency shelter families seven days a week.

Much of the food that is served has been donated from the community. Food is picked up by Loaves and Fishes daily (and as needed) from local stores, bakeries, produce companies, food suppliers and others. Individuals and organizations donate prepared foods, canned goods, meats, fish and produce. Because of these faithful donations, Loaves and Fishes is able to supply ample high quality, nutritious meals to those in need.

Throughout the week different volunteer crews prepare and serve meals to the public and to our shelter families. Volunteers are the heartbeat of the kitchen and because of their dedication to "the least of these" we are able to serve many men, women and children in need. Please pray that God will continue to bless us as we serve Him
