Assistance office hours: Mondays through Fridays 10am to 3:30pm, by appointment only.

Women's Shelter
Single women or families enter Open Arms through a five night crisis shelter program.

After this, guests may choose to join a program called "GROWING." This program requires a commitment from the woman to set reasonable goals toward independent living and to actively pursue those goals. Or, she may choose not to stay at Open Arms.

Men's Shelter
Every man enters KRM's shelter programs through the entry-level dormitory. Following an intake interview, our chaplains help the man assess his situation, begin to set goals and decide which program best meets his needs.

If a man is employed, the transition program will allow him to stay at the mission and save a portion of his wages to prepare for living independently. He is also expected to attend chapel, one-on-one case management or counseling sessions with staff and complete a community service assignment at the Mission, all coordinated with his work schedule.
