Night Shelter Opened in October 2005, the Night Shelter provides 118 emergency beds for homeless men, women, and families with children every night, year round. While the reasons for their becoming homeless vary, many are working individuals unable to afford housing in this area. Our goal: to provide the intensive support needed to shorten the length of their crisis and expedite their return to housing. After check-in, overnight guests are provided a dinner meal, on-site educational opportunities, and case management, including setting and working toward a plan for becoming housed again. Volunteers— including families, congregations, and individuals—assist with check-in and shelter monitoring, as well as preparation and service of the dinner meal.
