Shelter House provides safe shelter and helps people improve the quality of their lives as they move beyond homelessness. In addition to providing emergency housing, the organization helps locate permanent housing and provides employment and mental health services.
From 1983 to 2010, Shelter House was located in an older single family home in Iowa City’s north side. When it moved to Southgate Avenue and doubled in size, additional services and programs were added. Services include job training, a job lab, internships, part time employment, a janitorial business, culinary catering, nursing clinic, and homeless veterans reintegration.
