Churches United for the Homeless is the largest shelter in northwestern Minnesota and is the only shelter within 225 miles that is able to accommodate single men, single women, and both one and two parent families. We offer a safe haven to those most in need, a chance to reflect on the direction they wish for their lives, and the opportunity to utilize our communitys many resources in achieving their goals.

The immediate needs of the community are on the rise. Churches United for the Homeless serves as shelter for over 700 homeless men, women and families annually. The goal of Churches United for the Homeless is to move residents of the shelter into permanent housing, easing the burden on police and emergency room services by paving the road to independence for those that need care, medical and mental health referrals, substance abuse treatment referrals in order to get individuals the case management services they need. Churches United for the Homeless is the only shelter in the Fargo-Moorhead area that focuses on keeping families intact by allowing men and boys. The team at Churches United for the Homeless partners with various agencies such as the Veterans Administration, HRA Clay County, New Life Center, Dorothy Day House, Gladys Ray Shelter, Stepping Stone, Sanford Health, The Village Institute and MSUM Counseling Services. We work together to accommodate and serve the homeless population in this region.

Case management is available for shelter residents through the Director of Supportive Services and a Shelter Faith Community Nurse (SFCN). The Shelter Faith Community Nurse, is in collaboration with Sanford Health. The SFCN meets with residents and empowers them to achieve optimal health and wellness. The nurse also promotes and enhances wellness in the lives of shelter residents and staff by addressing the needs of mind, body, and spirit in a holistic manner with a focus on appropriate usage of health care services, access to care, and advocacy.

    I was forced out of overflow today for the night. This was for having the opinion that mixing transvestites with women overnight at a homeless shelter is discrimination against women. I was making a general comment and did not accuse anyone. Anna told me I could not discuss that issue at Churches United as this was hate talk. I believe she is the hater. I now suspect she is a transvestite and so is Kyle. Why else would they be so defensive of transvestites? It's tyrannical to say I cannot have free speech on this issue. Transvestites are not women and belong in their own category. Otherwise it's harassment of women. It's also a lie to call them women!
