Our Provision

Christian Shelter, Inc. is a tax-exempt, charitable organization, provided for through the generosity of God’s people.  The shelter receives no governmental financial support. While not affiliated with any particular denomination, it receives a large portion of its support from local churches and Christian groups and individuals.  Businesses and civic organizations also provide significant support.

The annual cost of operating Christian Shelter is significant and steadily rising. It includes all utilities and on-going maintenance and repair of our 60 plus year old, former shirt factory building. It also includes the cost of equipment and supplies needed to house and minister to the needs of up to 50 homeless people, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week year round; and provides a modest remuneration for a very dedicated staff of 3 administrative workers and 10 part-time night and support staff.

Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, our staff is committed to serving and ministering to our guests.  The daily staff is assisted in many tasks by dedicated volunteers, some of whom are former guests happy to give back to the Shelter.  There is still much work to do, so volunteers are always welcome.

Those whom God is leading to share in His work at Christian Shelter are encouraged to consider giving a few hours to:

1)  Assisting in the kitchen

2) Donating the following consumable supplies we are always in great need

     of: toilet paper, paper towels, bleach, cooking oil, butter or margarine,

     children’s drinks and juices, powdered drink mixes, sandwich bags, and

     pine-based cleaners.

3)  Volunteering on the weekend

4)  Making financial contributions to the Shelter’s work.
