The Welcome Place
Emergency Overnight Shelter and Drop-In Center.
The Welcome Place
Providing overnight emergency shelter and daytime outreach support so unsheltered men & women find trust, hope, and more stable life circumstances.
What is The Welcome Place?
The Welcome Place is an emergency overnight shelter that offers a safe place to sleep 365 days a year, and a daytime drop-in center offers outreach services 5 days per week. Together, they support our unsheltered neighbors helping them to find hope and confidence and stand with them as they navigate difficult situations, all in a trusting, healthy, and supportive atmosphere.
We partner with multiple agencies that provide a continuum of care that can help neighbors get on their feet again.
