THE SLENTZ HOUSE RESOURCE CENTER AND SHELTER PROGRAM
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
