RESOURCE CENTER

THE SLENTZ HOUSE RESOURCE CENTER AND SHELTER PROGRAMĀ 

The Resource Center is a place where our guests can shower, do their laundry, and use the Center’s computers to apply for jobs and housing. They are supported in this by our four-part time Support Service Coordinators and a full-time Program Director.

The C.A.R.E.S. program is open October through April. During these cold weather months, the program provides a warm and safe environment for up to 30 individuals a night at our host churches.

 

The Resource center increases opportunities for the homeless to :

-Have a safe environment during the day, out of the elements

-Have a daily routine and responsibilities

-Ongoing support to stay in contact with housing, legal, and employment resources

-Learn how to be accountable in a community setting

-Acquire self-worth and dignity

-Improve life skills through educational opportunities
