Shutting the Door on Homelessness

We know that the solution to homelessness is housing. With your support, together we can help save lives and money by housing people experiencing homelessness who are the most likely to die on our streets and are utilizing the most amount of services. We can shut the door on homelessness, making it a thing of the past and making a future of permanent housing and hope.

Our Values


We will act in ways that establish credibility and mutual trust.


We meet people we serve where they are.


Everyone who wants housing should have access to housing.


We promote justice tempered with compassion.  Err on the side of graciousness.


We are committed to providing non-threatening, safe spaces for everyone we serve, wherever they are in the community.


We expand choices and remove barriers to such access, so that housing is safe, affordable and accessible.
