Our Emergency Shelter

Our Emergency Shelter provides safe and warm overnight lodging for the homeless in our community during the winter months.  We partner with Love INC to be a Code Purple Shelter, from December 1st through March 15th, with hours from 9:00 PM to 7:00 AM .

Our Emergency Shelter first opened during the winter of 2007-2008. Our capacity and outreach have grown over the years with the help of community support, which is needed and appreciated, to help the Shelter run. For more information, contact Director Mari Ellyn Hellard at 302-601-1463
