House of Joseph I provides emergency shelter and services to homeless employable men. Residents come to the shelter for reasons that include family challenges, substance abuse, mental health disorders, unemployment or underemployment. Case managers initially help the men to resolve immediate crises. Subsequently, they begin the process of identifying barriers to long-term self-sufficiency. The opportunity to learn life management skills has proven especially helpful. When case managers determine which residents need and desire additional supportive services, they may refer them to a transitional residence or long-term housing program of the Ministry of Caring. Throughout every resident's stay, House of Joseph I strives to help each man reach his next step on the road to independent living.

Capacity: 12 men

    Stayed at This shelter, they did not help me at all from the start they were finding reasons to put people out and did that to me. I am due to start a job and they put me out in the cold no questions asked. They are rude people who take money from the state who do not help men they work to bring them down. I would never recommend this place to anyone I am already going through hard times and they made this even worse for me.
