Common Areas Encourage Community

The Community Shelter is able to house and feed 12 men, 11 single women and three families per night, and men and women have separate common areas where they can relax.  During their stay, guests are able to work with a case manager to determine next steps.  They  have access to computers for job searches, and case management where needs are assessed.  Guests may choose to stay in during the day or check out.
