The Emergency Shelter fulfills immediate basic needs (food, shelter, clothing), connects individuals with available resources, and guides them toward experiencing freedom and self-sufficiency.

Individuals seeking emergency shelter can check-in at any point during the day to complete an in-take form and drug screening. Shelter services are available to men, women and children. Separate, secure areas separate men from the women and children.

On week days, local churches and groups provide dinner for all residents. Hot showers and laundry services are also available to any resident. Shelter doors are locked at 9pm each night and residents are only permitted to leave with approval from the Shelter Manager (Exception are made for those who work later than 9pm).

Light breakfast snacks are available each morning. Residents are required to exit the facility no later than 8:00 a.m. each morning.

Every resident must:

    Have a photo ID
    Pass a background check, be free of any open warrants and cannot be on the sex-offender registry
    Pass an initial drug screening to be permitted to stay, as well as agree to random testing throughout their stay
    Complete a tracking card which tracks referrals to area services such as identification services, job resources, veteran assistance, etc. A standing-meeting is held every Tuesday at the Mission which brings these resources to the resident.
    Agree to a maximum stay of eight weeks in the Mission. Any exceptions must be approved by the Shelter Manager.
    Agree to follow all posted rules

Grace Project:
The Grace Project is Latrobe Street Mission’s long-term recovery program designed to assist individuals to attain and maintain a life of freedom from addiction and other life-dominating behaviors. The Grace Project is not an addictions treatment program, rather, it is a lifestyle recovery program.

Meals: The Latrobe Street Mission provides dinner Monday through Friday at 6:00 pm. Old Man Rivers provides a meal on Saturdays and Sundays at 4:30 pm. (Meals on Saturdays and Sundays at 4:30 pm are open to the community. You do NOT need to be a Latrobe resident to join us for those meals.)

Clothing is provided to anyone staying at the shelter. If you’re not staying at Latrobe, but are in need of clothing come to the shelter on Thursday from 11 to 2 or contact the shelter (304) 893-9248 in case of an emergency need.
