Forms may be picked up Monday - Friday (except holidays) from 9 am to 5 pm.Following the intake, eligible families are placed on a wait list and served on a first come first serve basis as units become available; therefore, it is important to give reliable contact information and/or to update your contact information should it change while you are awaiting service. Our Shelter has 12 units and works with families who have a child or children under the age of 18, or pregnant women who are in their third trimester. Families may stay up to 90 days, but the focus is on obtaining housing within 30 days. Families receive case management at least weekly to help them achieve this goal.
