Class of Housing: shelter, food pantry
For those who are homeless, Diakonia offers a roof over their heads and much more. Our trained and dedicated staff provides counseling and support in addressing the issues that contributed to homelessness in the first place. For those who are ready to leave Diakonia and move to permanent housing, Diakonia provides assistance in making the transition as well as continued support. Diakonia also operates a food pantry which provides food assistance to hundreds of needy families every month. The food pantry program also helps Diakonia maintain contact with its ‘graduates’ and ensure that they continue to have access to the counseling and support they need.
The total overnight capacity of our two buildings is between 35 and 45 persons; the configuration varies depending on the number of families, men and women in residence. We plan to add more capacity in order to respond to current trends which reflect the need is greater than the available resources and we are currently unable to serve all in need. We also operate a thrift shop where Diakonia volunteers merchandise and sell in-kind donations received that cannot be used in our operations. Proceeds from the thrift shop contribute substantially to our daily operations.
