The health of our community depends on the collaboration of all our citizens working together. By investing in people who cannot recover their stability without support, we can create the community we all want — a community in which everyone can thrive. ShelterCare's programs depend upon community support to ensure the funding necessary to serve those needing our help. We do this work because everyone in our community deserves a home. Our tax ID number is 23-7115003.
