Mission Statement

"OUR MISSION To provide an environment of support and empowerment where people can improve their quality of living."

Bell Family Shelter opened in 1986 and remains York County's only 30-day emergency shelter serving homeless families.
Many of the families served by the Shelter are homeless because of insufficient income, job loss or poor housing conditions. As a safe, temporary place with supportive services, staying at the Shelter helps families navigate the challenges of homelessness and regain their independence.
The Shelter's eleven-bedroom facility houses as many as forty people per night (about half of whom are under the age of 12) and provides the basic needs for food, clothing and shelter.
When families arrive at the Shelter doorstep they often require more than just a safe place to sleep for the night. Throughout their stay they meet with service and supports coordinators to build a personalized family goal plan to help them regain and maintain independent living in the community.
