Much more than a shelter.
When a person comes to our Access Center and is seeking help, we connect them with a Case Manager who will talk with them to assess the next best step while with us.  A Life Coach teams up with the person as an accountability partner in reaching individual goals.  He or she embarks on a personalized Shelter Track or Residential Track.  Both tracks give access to all services at Water Street and with our community partners. We provide :
    Counseling and case management
    Referrals to community services for financial, job, and housing needs.
    Recovery groups and parenting classes
    Devotions, chapel services and group prayer sessions
    Free dental care at Water Street Health Services
    Free medical and behavioral health support
Our Access Center is located at the corner of South Prince Street and Conestoga Street in Kuhns Hall – this is the brick building with two steeples.

Many of these shelters now have waiting lists. Please call before going to them. Many waiting lists are very long. Shelters and service also go out of business. Always call ahead to confirm that this location is still active. If you find that this location is no longer operating, please send us a comment using the form below.

If you have pictures of the shelter, I will upload them on this page. Please email me with the name of your shelter and the pictures to: HomelessSupport@gmail.com
