Overnight Shelter Progress & Updates
UPDATE: Dated January 6, 2019, 2:00pm
As the New Year begins, our shelter renovation fund total has surpassed $130,000!
Your response is more than I’d dared hope when we first learned of the City’s decision to shut down our shelter. Your generosity and compassion toward our homeless neighbors has been overwhelming! We have met our Phase 1 renovation goal! Thank you!
January Next Steps:
General Contractor meeting, prepare Phase 1 renovation plan
Contractor draws up plans for complete sprinkler system
Present Phase 1 to the City
If approved, begin construction
Stay tuned for pictures and the rollout of the complete renovation plan! We have several more phases to finish before the shelter has a permanent place in our building with the ability to provide beds for 45 individuals. If Phase I is approved, we can Bring our 26 homeless guests In - because you cared!

We Support Families
It doesn't take much to destabilize a family unit. Maybe it's an illness or injury, losing a job, domestic violence, or the exploding cost of housing and rent which can quickly outpace a families resources. Whatever it is, we are here to keep that family off the street.
Recently a former guest said,
"My daughter and I used to spend time here(KRM) in the day room while I was pregnant and homeless living in a homeless shelter! We moved back home and are finally stabilizing, but this place was our saving grace! Thank you for all your help and hope you gave us!"
You can help make sure families have a safe place to stay, a hot meal, and a warm bed to sleep in by giving now.
