Our mission is to assist people in need of food, shelter, and help for a better tomorrow. Our guests receive shelter for 30-90 days regardless of religion, ethnicity, age or reason for homelessness. Along with shelter, we provide our residents two meals each day as well as help in finding a job or housing. We connect them with community resources such as education, transportation, employment, child care, healthcare and social services. When they obtain more permanent housing, we try to supply them with household items and resources to make that transition as smooth as possible.
Our mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a community based response.
Our vision is a community in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future.
