All of those seeking shelter must go through an in-take process. This process includes basic paperwork, information about the individual, and sex-offender registry check. 

Once we have accepted the individual in as a guest their bed is secured for at least 30 days, given that there are no behavioral issues.

Each evening our shelter guests will be checked in. 

During winter hours (Labor Day to Memorial Day) check-in is from 6:00 - 7:00p.m.

During summer hours (Memorial Day to Labor Day) check-in is from 8:00 - 9:00p.m. 

Specific accommodations can be made for work schedules or other circumstances. 

Individuals, Churches and other groups or organizations will serve as on-site hosts. Their main responsibilities will be caring for the shelter guests by helping to check them in each night, providing and serving an evening meal, serving as over-night security, and helping in the day shelter.

All shelter guests must complete a shelter intake prior to the first time they check-in.
To set up an intake please call the housing hotline at 989-948-0404.
