Mission

Our mission is to provide a low-barrier winter shelter for homeless individuals in Monroe County from November 1 through March 31, from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m., seven days a week. Our purpose is to offer a warm, safe place to those who have no place to go and do not meet admission requirements for other shelter sites in this community.

The Shelter is currently recruiting volunteers and accepting donations for the 2013-2014 season. We welcome your participation as volunteer, donor, or community partner in a collaborative effort that is strengthened by the whole community’s involvement.
