Emergency shelter for homeless families.
Provides basic living for free as long as they are with us.

Provides a pet friendly shelter for the families in the shelter. The facility offers all the comforts of home: a kitchen, place to do laundry and computers to search for jobs and permanent housing. Four families can stay at the shelter at a time during the day. At night, they are transported to various churches while their pets stay in the kennels. Last year, the organization served 26 families; so far this year they have already helped 24 families.

The kennel area can house four dogs and four cats and was added as part of the renovation, said Wilhite.
