"A Caring Shelter for the Homeless since 1983"

Shelter Services

The Christian Help Center serves approximately 1100 men, women and children each year.  In addition to providing safe shelter, the agency serves an average of 180 meals each day, provides restroom and shower facilities, clothing, case management services, housing counseling, and placement with community support services and partner agencies.

CHC is a temporary shelter with the objective of assisting each guest in attaining skills required to become self sufficient and independent in the community.  Some of these skills include developing and maintaining healthy relationships, anger management, money management and spiritual development, if requested. When appropriate, guests are referred to support groups for substance abuse.  We believe in the holistic approach of body, mind and spirit in reaching individual goals of personal development.

Guests are required to save a percentage of their income (if any) so as to accumulate enough funds to pay for permanent housing and related expenses.  Move-in assistance, such as donated furniture and household items, is provided.
