Marshall House has since grown to a 27-bed Family Shelter and a 23-bed Overflow Shelter, providing comprehensive services to people who are at risk of homelessness, currently experiencing homelessness, or are transitioning from homelessness back into stable housing.

These shelters provide sheltering services for up to 50 guests who are homeless, including:

Emergency housing Nutritious meals Case management Employment readiness/job search services life-skill workshops (i.e.
nutrition, improving credit, resume writing, and job and apartment searches) Recreation groups for children Family activities Onsite assessments for mental health and substance abuse needsAn on-site computer lab to support residents in their efforts to become job-ready to search for jobs

The goal of the Family Shelter is two-fold:

First is to provide a safe place for people who are homeless and provide for their basic needs.
Second is to empower the shelter's guests to rebuild their lives and move into and maintain stable housing.
