The recently renovated Men’s Shelter is dormitory style with beds for sixteen (16) men, shared kitchen, bathroom, living room, and laundry facilities. In addition, there are two (2) small apartments in the building. One of these is for the Residential Staff. The other is for the use of a shelter resident needing long-term housing. A small office is also located at the men’s facility where resources for mission clients are coordinated. Shelter clients may stay at the facility for 30-60 days during which time they work with shelter staff to find employment and/or permanent housing.
City Mission Women’s Shelter is a remodeled house and is used for emergency shelter for women, and women with small children from non-abusive situations. There are twelve (12) beds that can accommodate eight (8) women depending upon the number of children. (Four of the beds are pull-out, trundle style beds allowing a mother and her child to sleep close to each other.) There are also communal kitchen and laundry facilities as well as an on-site apartment for the resident manager and an office where services are coordinated for residents. In addition to shelter and food, we provide an array of on-site services including case management, resident management, and transportation.
Gallatin School Living Centre:
The Gallatin School Living Centre is a 30-unit housing and service complex that provides City Mission clients with safe and affordable long-term housing along with on-site support services. Located in the historic former Gallatin Elementary School, the building was recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Twelve of the units are transitional in nature specifically designed for families, and eighteen are SRO (Single Room Occupancy) permanent units for single adults. Each apartment is beautifully remodeled, fully furnished, and has its own kitchen and bath.
Residents of the transitional units may live there up to two years, during which time they participate in a comprehensive program of services designed to move them toward self- sufficiency. Tenants must pay one third of their income towards the rent, but because the units are heavily subsidized, nobody is turned away due to an inability to pay.
Gallatin also houses the administrative and service offices of City Mission, a large community room, two laundry areas and two lounge areas. A library/resource room with computers, audio-visual equipment and other resources is available on-site for client use. A large playroom for children is also located in the Gallatin facility.
CASE MANAGEMENT: On-site case management helps clients identify and overcome barriers to obtaining self-sufficiency.
RESIDENT MANAGEMENT: The resident management staff handles emergency situations and maintain the rules and regulations of the facility.
LIFE SKILLS WORKSHOPS: These weekly classes cover topics such as money management, parenting, job readiness, and nutrition. All residents are required to attend.
BIBLE STUDIES: Led by members of St. Paul’s AME Church, a weekly bible study is held for all our shelter and Gallatin School residents onsite in the community room at the Gallatin School Living Centre. Residents share a meal followed by the bible study.
TRANSPORTATION: The City Mission vehicles are available to assist Gallatin residents who need transportation to job interviews and other appointments.
REFERRALS: and linkages to other social service agencies are offered to clients who need them.
PATH PROGRAM: City Mission has partnered with the Office of Mental Health to provide intensive case management services to our clients who suffer from mental health issues, substance abuse problems and/or both.
Permanent Supportive Housing
City Mission operates fourteen units of rental housing in three separate apartment complexes – Liberty Park Apartments, Sycamore Hills Apartments, and Stone Ridge Apartments. Our primary purpose for developing this housing type is to meet the needs of clients coming out of shelter and/or transitional housing programs who need support services linked to permanent supporting housing. City Mission is developing Meadow View Apartments, an additional eight units of permanent supportive housing. We anticipate opening Meadow View Apartments by December 2019.
