Some of you may remember the public conversations about homeless people sleeping outside and under the bridge last summer. In response to the need, in September of 2018 Charter House opened the shelter for individuals 6 weeks early.
Well...we are not waiting until September this year.
Summer 2019 - The Shelter is Open!
For the first time since Charter House Coalition opened shelter programming in 2009, we are staying open during the warm months!
If we had closed our doors, people would again be sleeping in vehicles, under the bridge, in abandoned buildings, under porches, camping, or couch surfing.
So the mission continues...
We need your continued support to stay open year round - providing shelter at night, meals for the hungry, and support to get lives back on track.
Thank you to all of our donors!
Recently, Charter House Coalition (CHC) was awarded a $2,000 donation from Dewitt Blake Insurance Agency through the Safeco Insurance Change Agents Program.
