Crisis-Shelter2016

A Safe, Healthy Refuge

The Crisis Shelter for Women and Children exists to provide a safe, healthy, short-term refuge for women and children in crisis. The Shelter strives to keep as many women and children off the streets as possible and admits guests until it reaches full capacity.

A playground for younger children was created adjacent to the facility, providing a safe, clean play area for the children at the Shelter and in the surrounding neighborhood.

Director Diane Hutton on goals for the Crisis Shelter:

“We want the Crisis Shelter to be a place where women and children can find safety and refuge, where they can experience God’s unconditional love and acceptance. We want them to know God loves them right where they are and wants to pick up all of their broken pieces and make them whole again. He wants to give them beauty for ashes. We want to give them more than just food and water but Living Water!”

RESOURCES

  • Life Skills Classes – All residents desiring to stay longer than two weeks participate in educational modules developed to address the underlying causes of homelessness.
  • Guest Assistant Track – Residents assist in the day-to-day tasks of running the shelter, learning responsibility and basic job skills in the process.
  • Business Bound Track – Select residents are mentored in the process of beginning their own small business with the end goal of becoming financially self-sufficient.

Residents dealing with ongoing addiction issues are encouraged to attend the Women’s Recovery orientation at Anna Ogden Hall.
