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.
A new Shelter House housing project, Cross Park Place, will open later this fall. It is targeted to the chronically homeless in our community who utilize high levels of cross-system services. It is the first of its kind in Iowa, with 24 permanent one-bedroom apartments, on-site offices, and an exam room for partnering medical clinicians.
You may donate on Sundays or online (designate SH on memo line).
