Our John Thompson Center for Men provides emergency shelter and support services for 21 men. Our Friendship Home for Women and Children provides emergency shelter and support services for 41 women and children. Both shelters are low barrier.
We provide crisis stabilization services via our connection with community partners to families and individuals. Services include housing stabilization, homelessness prevention and diversion, financial assistance, and rapid rehousing services using the Housing First Model.
Not everyone is ready to come into a shelter. We help those experiencing unsheltered homelessness obtain safe, permanent housing through case management, street outreach, life skills education, crisis counseling, and connection to community partners.
Unlike nighttime only or day shelters, our residents are not forced to leave. We provide 24-hour continuous emergency shelter until the individual’s housing needs are met. Residents can stay with us up to 12 months as they work through the issues that lead them to experience homelessness.
