Class of Housing: Christian shelter for women and children in crisis.

General Information:

Evangel Home is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Christian shelter for women and children in crisis. We provide food, shelter, clothing and programs that encourage and equip those residing with us.

We accept women and children in crisis. The crisis they are in will vary, but whatever the reason, they need help. We take women with children as well as single women. We do not accept children by themselves.

If You Need Help
First

Call (559) 264-4714 to see if we have openings. You will speak to the house manager or receptionist on duty. She will explain the rules and expectations. You will be asked some basic questions about your situation, and have the chance to ask us questions.
Second

An appointment will be made for you to come to Evangel Home for an in-depth interview. It will take about an hour. If you have children, it is O.K. to bring them with you. Come to the interview ready to stay even though we cannot guarantee that you will be admitted. The staff member who does your interview will also pray with you if you wish.
Third

After the interview, you will be shown around the Home and given a brief explanation of how everything works. We want you to feel welcome here, and we understand that this might be a stressful time. Usually the first 24 hours are the hardest because everything is new and unfamiliar. However, it gets easier once you know the routine and what to expect.


Basic Guidelines

We offer you the best we have in a warm and supportive environment. There is no charge for your stay, but we do ask that you contribute to the household chores. We have several programs each with different rules, requirements, and expectations. However, each area has the following basics:

    We are a non-smoking facility. No smoking is allowed anywhere on our campus.
    We do not tolerate alcohol or drug use.
    We have curfews and times to be in the Home.
    Everyone helps with household chores.
    We maintain a dress code.
    We have zero tolerance for violence either physical or verbal.

We talk and teach about choice. We must help our women learn to develop options and take personal responsibility. They might be the one to break the bonds of generational chains. No matter what situation a woman is in, she has learned and developed life habits. Sometimes old habits must be broken before anything new really sinks in. Then there must be time to practice new habits and skills. Our programs provide both the time and skills needed to break the cycles these women face. For decades, our core programs have been creating an environment of love, community, and security for the women and children we serve.
