“This family is built on the teachings of the missionaries and the early preachers. Jesus Christ Himself is the cornerstone, which is the most important part of the building. Christ keeps this building together and it is growing into a holy building for the Lord.” Ephesians 2:20-21 (New Life Version)

It is our goal to lessen the wait time for emergency shelter.

It is our goal to keep families intact, safe, and less traumatized.

It is our goal to help your investment in these lives go further.

Our $575,00 project includes a 5,200 sq. foot addition that will provide a separate family center to provide safety, privacy, and group time; an updated women’s area; private staff offices for one-on-one meetings with guests; a larger kitchen and common room; a fenced, secure children’s playground; and a receiving room and storage for in-kind goods.

We will be able to increase our capacity from 35 to 70 beds as funding allows to meet the growing need, and will see improved operational efficiency through centralized offices and improved access to stored in-kind goods.

Please join us for our ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. Nov. 22!
