We're here to help you get back on your feet.

The process starts with a personal interview.

The interview is an assessment of the individual and her needs. We will identify the immediate crisis and discuss the resources that we have available. The client will have the opportunity to ask questions about the shelter and the resources that may be available to her once she is accepted into the program. The client will know if she has been accepted into the program once the interview is completed. If there is a waiting list for bed space then she will be placed on a list and will be contacted once a space becomes available.

Basic Requirements

  • Alcohol and drug free.
  • Must be 18 or older and homeless without children with them
  • Work ready
  • Capable of a 40 hour work week
  • Able to live in a group setting

How to Get Started

If these requirements are met then the next step is to call and schedule a face to face interview.
