Our Shelter is not the film version shelter that provides beds and hot meals for homeless men seemingly without the motivation to improve their lives. We do provide temporary housing and meals – to men, women and children – but our mission, programs and success stories tell a vastly broader story.
Job loss, divorce, foreclosure, illness, family dispute – these can quickly move residents from independence to homelessness. Our goal is to promote a swift return to self-sufficiency for clients who often are shocked by their situation. By encouraging rapid rehousing, we are keeping temporary homelessness from becoming a chronic situation.
Our highly successful programs and services have grown significantly, but we need more space to better provide those services to all Union County residents who need them. We need your help.
