Is living in a publicly or private operated shelter designed to provide temporary living arrangements or is exiting an institution where they have resided for 90 days or less.

    There are no geographic restrictions but residents must be able to complete a face to face interview to review program requirements in order to be accepted.

    Families may stay up to six months to meet their goals for stability and life changes.  Longer stays are permissible with Administrator approval.  Goals are re-evaluated every two weeks to ensure progress towards independent living.

    Every resident is asked to pay $50 of his or her monthly income towards the operation of the shelter.  No one is turned away for inability to pay.  Residents provide their own food and clothing.  Residents without resources are referred to appropriate social service agencies for food and clothing.
