CHRISTIAN HELP CENTER CHURCH
September 19, 2013

The Christian Help Center has been in existence for 30 years. This is a caring homeless shelter, which has provided thousands of beds for those who are without a place to sleep and/or eat. The Center provides breakfast, lunch and dinner - not only to their guests, but to others in the community who need an emergency meal. Every Saturday the Center gives 50-60 bags of groceries to the community. A public restroom with shower is provided for the homeless who are in the streets or encampments. They provide casemanagement to help the clients progress from having nothing to becoming employed and finding housing. The organization does not discriminate against persons of color, religion, disability, gender, or sexual preferences. Spiritual guidance is offered, but not mandatory. This is a "working shelter", meaning that all guests are required to help maintain the facilities. This also helps people gain their self-respect and dignity, knowing that they are "giving back", rather than just "taking".
