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 promote justice tempered with compassion, and always seek to err on the side of graciousness.


We prioritize resources to match needs.


We believe everyone should have access to housing.


We provide non-threatening, safe spaces for everyone we serve.


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


We expand choices, remove barriers to access, and educate and inform, so that housing is appropriate, safe, affordable and accessible in the eyes of those we serve.


We recognize and respect the unique needs and circumstances of the people that we serve.


To stay up-to-date on the progress of our mission, ways to get involved and issues relating to homelessness, please sign up below for our monthly e-newsletter. With your support we are making homelessness rare, short-lived and non-recurring in our community!
