Description: Interim shelter and services for 39 families.

Case Management: Our trained Case Managers support clients' unique needs, helping them manage budgets, connect with resources, and make active progress toward regaining permanent housing.

Housing and Job Search Assistance: Staff and volunteers provide clients with training, tools, and resources to find and secure affordable housing and employment.

Additional Beyond the Bed Services: We offer an array of services that go beyond the bed to meet our clients' unique needs and enable them to become self-sufficient for the long term.
