The agency's twelve programs–each a ShelterCare community–help move people toward greater levels of independence. Creating a caring community has been a guiding theme for ShelterCare since the agency was established in 1970. Supported by private contributions and publicly supported services, the nonprofit agency has grown from a single homeless shelter to several distinct programs that serve individuals and families in need of supported services.
ShelterCare is a private, nonprofit human services agency directed by a board of community volunteers. Program services are provided in key areas:
a range of mental health programs from supported living to intensive residential care, with numerous programs specifically for people who are homeless;
residential training programs for survivors of an acquired brain injury;
emergency shelter and transitional housing support for families with children who are homeless;
homelessness prevention services for families, who with individual, specialized services, have a good chance of remaining in their homes and avoiding homelessness.
Individuals and businesses provide for a critical and significant portion of the agency’s work in the form of financial support, volunteer time and in-kind donations. All donations to the agency are tax deductible.
