Our Father Homeless shelter has grown from "a shelter of last resort" which provided a bed and a meal, to an agency that offers comprehensive case management services to the homeless.
Although the Emergency Shelter Program is partially funded by the Department of Housing and Community Development, fundraising efforts are critical and ongoing to keep the Shelter operating.
The government funding does not cover any capital expenditures, such as repairs/maintenance, renovations, nor the entirety of some operating costs such as food, electricity, heat and any administrative expenses.
The bulk of the share of costs is paid through an Annual Fund Drive, conducted by the Board of Directors each September.
Last year, they provided shelter and transitional housing to approximately a combined total of 950 individuals and families.
