St. Benedict Emergency Homeless Shelter is a temporary refuge for the homeless men in our community. We provide our guests with a safe, non-judgmental, warm place to sleep, take a shower, eat and wash personal laundry in a Christian atmosphere.
We need to help our homeless so that they can be provided with a place to sleep, a hot meal, a warm shower and a place to launder their clothing. Please consider what you can give so that our community may continue to operate its only walk-in homeless shelter. Without your generosity many will find no shelter from the weather, no food to fill their stomach and no loving community away from the streets.
Transitional Housing Services
The primary purpose or mission of transitional housing environments is to help the resident become a productive member of society while also helping the resident to establish a valid rental history. Our transitional homes provide a drug free environment and foster a peer driven atmosphere.
We currently operate two Transitional Homes for the men of St. Benedict’s transitioning from the facility, to the outside world. These two homes, the Good Samaritan Home and the Foundation Home, house seven men each at a time, and require monitored random drug screening while also providing a 2-year transition period. These homes also provide low-cost rent and help establish credible rental history. This, then allows our men to overcome financial barriers, save money, obtain vehicles, strengthen sobriety, return to school, overcome legal situations, learn accountability and responsibility, and thus, creates an independent member of society.
