IT'S NOT WHO YOU THINK
Many families and individual residents come to call the Covenant Shelter home. Men, women and families come to the shelter for any number of personal and different reasons - it may be the loss of a home through fire, eviction or foreclosure, or the loss of a job due to illness or injury, or the death of a partner or spouse. For some, substance abuse and addiction is a contributing factor to the loss of a home.
Covenant Shelter is a "dry" shelter. Our clients must be clean and sober, or actively working on their sobriety, before coming to stay here. Once here,they have their basic needs covered while they get to work on an Action Plan with their case manager. Residents at Covenant Shelter are provided home cooked meals, they rotate chores, baby-sit one another's children and watch the school bus round the corner every morning and afternoon. Single men and women come from around the region for the support and services available to them while they work at re-establishing their own residence.
