SHIP, the Samaritan Homeless Interim Program, began operations on March 5, 1984 in response to the unheeded cry of the many women, children and men who are in desperate need of emergency housing and associated services.
Services are tailored to each individual's need and vary in duration according to each individual or families situation.
SHIP provides this unique population with critically needed emergency interim services.
These services may include advocacy, emergency interim housing, interim counseling, and support services, that greatly enhance their chances of regaining their self-sufficiency again.
SHIP is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the poor.
Clients are eligible to apply for all of SHIP's Programs and Services.
