Hot Showers and Personal Hygiene
Restrooms, hot showers and personal hygiene supplies are all available, including diapers.
Day Room
Separate enclosed courtyards and spacious indoor assembly areas provide a safe, environment for hundreds of men, women and children to spend their daylight hours when environmental factors (too hot, too cold, rain, snow) might otherwise put them at risk.
Caring counselors, who provide assistance and referrals for employment, housing, government aid, life-recovery and other services, assess each individual’s unique circumstances.
Spiritual Encouragement
Daily chapel services and access to chaplains 7 days a week for counseling and prayer offer the new hope and healing essential to building new lives.
Chapel services are held every night from 6:45 pm to 8:00 pm.
