Shelter Programs

IMPACT

Over 18,000 nights of shelter provided.

56% of residents who exited shelter are in permanent housing.

113 unduplicated families were provided safe shelter in 2020.

We have two shelter programs: Our Emergency Family Shelter (EFS) which provides shelter for families and the Individuals/Single Shelter that provides shelter for single individuals.  

When people come to us or call us in their time of need, we work hard to divert them from homelessness by creatively problem solving  with them. This is a process called "diversion". When we can't successfully divert them from homelessness and we have bed availability, they become a resident through our "intake" process.

Our staff assess what resources and programs are available to them to help them on their journey towards self-sufficiency and permanent housing.

During their time with Shalom Center, residents meet with their assigned case manager to set goals, find programs, and keep on track towards different milestones.
