Help End Homelessness


Everyone needs a home: a safe and secure sanctuary of warmth and comfort. For over three decades, we have provided temporary shelter to the homeless and lobbied our local and state governments for affordable housing. Join us by volunteering in our shelter and participating in the Interfaith Assembly on Homelessness & Affordable Housing.
