Class of Housing/Services: overnight shelter, family shelter, day center.

General Information:
The overnight shelter is the core of our mission. We utilize the space provided by community churches to shelter our residents overnight. Each month, the location of the shelter rotates to the next church on the list. Based on space and availability, C.A.R.E.S. has the resources to shelter 60 individuals a night. Family Shelter ​ ​ Our family shelter has evolved as the needs of the homeless families continued to grow in the Cumberland County area. Initially, families were sheltered in hotels paid for by C.A.R.E.S.. Over time, it made sense to shelter the families at the host church. When space and volunteers are available, the family shelter is housed at a separate church than the host church. Resource Center ​ The resource center is a day center which provides C.A.R.E.S.' residents the resources needed to complete daily basic needs. This could include showers, laundry, and eating. It also acts as a place of contact for the residents to use when applying for housing and jobs.
