Emergency Shelter for Adults

Our Emergency Shelter offers 97 beds for men and 21 beds for women. Our beds are available on a first come, first serve basis. Our clients are supported by 24-hour staff who provide assistance with housing searches, basic needs, and referrals to community resources as needed. While staying, clients are encouraged to pursue housing searches with the goal to secure a home.


Chaplain’s offices are located on the residential floors to provide Spiritual Care through prayer, discipleship and mentoring. All clients are invited to attend our Community Chapel Services held here on Sundays and Wednesdays at 4:00pm.
