Programs: *Adams Street Family Campus: emergency shelter and transitional housing for families with children and single women. Programming includes adult basic education/GED test preparation, life skills classes such as budgeting and parenting, and a vibrant child/youth program for the children of homeless families.

*Tyler Street Family Campus: transitional housing for families with children. Programming helps clients transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency and includes a career coach to help clients access vocational training and college certificates or degrees that will increase their incomes.

* Addiction Recovery: A free-of-charge residential addiction recovery program is available for men, women, and families. This is an eight-month intensive faith-based program for people addicted to alcohol or drugs with the goal of life transformation.

* Good Neighbor Cafe: The Cafe provides breakfast and supper freely to anyone who enters the cafe, no questions asked. Although most who come for meals are homeless, some precariously housed people come occasionally. The availability of these meals means that people do not have to choose between paying for rent, medicine, or food. It also means that concerned people in the community can rest assured that meals are available for the homeless, and they can direct panhandlers to the Cafe rather than give them money that might feed an addiction.

* Emergency Shelter for homeless men at the Downtown Campus. Emergency shelter for unaccompanied women and families with children at the Adams Street Family Campus.

Mission:

We provide emergency services such as shelter and food to the homeless and hurting, offer self-sufficiency programs to help lift a person from poverty and break the chains of addictions, support prevention programs, and share our Christian faith."
