The Foundation Shelters addresses the very basic needs of our Community's most desperate citizens, the homeless. Most of our homeless residents are men with long term social and health problems that cause their homeless status. Occasionally someone with a short term problem needs our help.
While most residents are men, we usually are accommodating three or four women and occasionally mothers with children. The shelter facility is designed to totally separate women and children from the male population.

We can house 25 residents. We average about 16 residents but at times we are completely full.

A bed is supplied in a warm, safe environment free of cost. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided free of charge at the Foundation Dinners which is located 2 blocks from the shelter.

The Shelter opens at 8:00 PM in the warm season. When fall arrives and the evenings get shorter and colder the doors open at 5:00 PM, immediately after the Foundation Dinners meal. This change of opening time occurs when daylight savings time takes place.
The Foundation Shelter is a non-profit Ohio Corporation.  All gifts are tax exempt as the shelter is a 501c3 Agency.
