We provide clients safety and stability when they need it most
Family Emergency Shelter
Our Family Housing emergency shelter is the only one of its kind in the area. It provides critical housing to 42-45 participants for up to two months.
Our approach to addressing the growing housing needs of homeless families is not just to provide housing, but also the tools they need to break the cycle of homelessness.
We support adults with respect to both the physical aspect of their homelessness (residential services) and all the underlying reasons that caused them to become homeless (support services).
Our comprehensive support services include vocational training, workforce education, job placement, housing placement, job & housing retention support, counseling, case management and much more. Access to medical care, dental care, mental health care, substance abuse treatment etc. are provided through a network of formal partnerships.
Women’s Emergency Shelter
Constructed in the late 1800s and listed on the National Historic Registry, 8 Woodland Place is the home of Inspirica’s emergency shelter for women - the only one of its kind in the area. The shelter provides emergency housing and support services for 25 single women for up to two months.
Participants live in a boarding house structure with shared bedrooms, bathrooms, and a common TV/computer room. Participants receive breakfast and dinner through our Meal Program, often courtesy of our volunteers.
