Welcome to the 5th season of this grass roots community effort!
Last Season Summary:
We opened on 39 of the most severe weather nights this winter. We served 72 individual guests and 6 dogs for overnight stays. The individuals were comprised of 66 adults and 6 children. Families with children were connected to shelter outside the center in private homes or a motel. In total we provided 305 nights of shelter, an increase of 28% from the previous season.
We had 45 guests who arrived in a crisis situation and were able to be cared for overnight and assisted with next steps in the morning. This was a 50% increase over last year. In addition to overnight stays, we had 52 opportunities to provide people with bus tickets, gas or other transportation to help them on to a better destination, as this is not the area to be stranded with no resources, especially in the winter. We also supported over 30 other individuals with sleeping bags, blankets, warm clothing, basic necessities, and connection to community resources.
Help us continue to BE this support, for OUR neighbors in need.
