North Strand Housing Shelter
- Non-Profits/Civic Organizations
We are moving into our 5000 sq. ft. addition in April of 2015. This new facility will allow us to potentially house another 37 people, to include desperately needed family rooms and Veteran Wing.
Shelter guests may stay for seven days but after that time they must join one of two programs: a holistic Discipleship Program for men or woman, or the Outreach Program for men or women where we help them find employment and/or housing.
Our 2014 records show that we received calls representing 753 persons asking for assistance. Of that number, these calls represented a remarkable 142 children that were with their mom or parents, living in cars, etc. We have been able to successfully find work and/or housing for many of the people we assist. Our case management follows them for several months to give additional support and follow-up direction, after leaving the shelter.
