The Emergency Shelter is here when a life “situation” makes you homeless. The Shelter is designed to help St. Joseph and our surrounding communities where this resource is unavailable.
How to get into the Shelter?
Each day at 4:00pm, we take requests for cots. We do take guests at other times when accompanied by authorities, a hospital release or other approved circumstances.
Cots are reserved on a “first-come, first-served” basis. If we run out of space, you will be put on a waiting list and may call back at 6 to follow up.
We have accommodations for men and women.
When you arrive, you are required to do an intake interview.
You will be supplied with the rules that are to be followed
What is Provided?
We provide a Breakfast Bar/Danish each day and coffee from 7am-10am.
We are located next to the Open-Door Food Kitchen where lunch is served each day at 11:30
We provide dinner each night at 5:30 in our Church building.
What assistance do we provide?
We have a Community Health Worker to assist in developing a plan to remove barriers to housing.
Our goal is to refer you to resources to get you back on your feet.
With a plan and your dedication to the plan, we can assist you in successfully exiting the Shelter.
