Description: Homeless Services & Fresh Start Village

PCM began operating a shelter in 1990, offering on-site care by our Homeless Shelter Director and our part-time shelter supervisor. Today, PCM operates the newly opened Fresh Start Village for homeless women and children.

Through a comprehensive program, PCM’s goal is to help individuals break the cycle of homelessness and obtain permanent, affordable housing. In order to do this, we work with residents to identify special needs which may be barriers to obtaining and maintaining stable housing. Case management helps to break the journey to self-sufficiency into small, manageable steps. Services provided include housing counseling, food and transportation assistance, mental health services as well as parenting, money management and life skills education.
