The shelter program is a small men's dormitory that provides basic emergency shelter as well as one-on-one case management. The community arts program is a unique space where individuals can create, house and sell artwork, offering open studio hours, workshops, a creative writing class, and an opportunity for artists to exhibit and sell their work.

I've been with this organization for almost 6 years and it's so rewarding to watch clients become self-sufficient and lend their hand out to help another. We do believe in second chances. One hand helping another!!
