Emergency Services

Life change begins with the basics for the underserved in our community. Every man, woman, and child that comes to us receives three meals each day, as well as warm clothing, a warm shower, and basic hygiene items.

Shepherd’s House Ministries provides over 30,000 meals and over 12,000 nights of stay each year as well as other services including hot showers, clothing, and medical care. But our greater aim is to provide a safe and healing place for friends of the friendless and hope for the hopeless. Our doors are open to everyone regardless of age, faith or gender. Services are performed at a permanent location.

During the coldest months of the year we facilitate three rotating Winter Shelters. The Shelters are located in three neighboring communities and provide a warm, safe place to sleep, meals and community. our greater aim is to provide a safe and healing place for friends of the friendless and hope for the hopeless. Our doors are open to everyone regardless of age, faith or gender and in some locations we are able to accommodate pets!

Our goal is to provide a loving, grace-filled community for the hurting and broken that reflects our relationship with Jesus, is grounded in God’s grace, and leads to a life of authenticity, vulnerability, and transforming growth through dependence on God and interdependence on one another.

We provide resources and community for men and women who are looking for life transformation. We work with individuals from diverse backgrounds and life stories, to build genuine connection. Through these friendships, a community is built that brings strength to make real and lasting life changes addressing areas of addiction, grief, homelessness.

During 2020 during the COVID-19 Pandemic, Shepherd’s House stepped up to meet the new and growing food needs of our community. On March 23, 2020, our residents began distributing food boxes, clothing and toiletries at a drive-by station Monday thru Friday. Now, at this writing, 50 days later, we have provided 2122 boxes containing 11,851 meals. This in addition to the normal food service that we provide for the homeless population and our residents.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to provide life essentials; food, clothing, blankets for the poor and homeless and provide emergency shelter to keep people safe. Provide a long-term grace based community where men, women and children can live and address the issues and behaviors that lead to addiction and brokenness. Offer grace and truth to address the spiritual and emotional needs of our guests and residents as they reintegrate into the community.

Provide food, clothing, shelter, and assistance to the unsheltered at a permanent and rotating location. Provide residential education and recovery programs for both men and women dealing with life issues. Provide housing for men and women who complete programs as they reintegrate into the community.

We are meeting the need as described above with two exceptions. Currently the men in our recovery program share housing with our emergency unsheltered guests which is not ideal. Our goal would be to house the men in our full time program in a separate facility. In addition, there is not a full time, permanent emergency shelter for women.

We have a full time Recovery & Habilitation program for 30 men and 9 women, we've established three winter shelters throughout our community during the coldest months of the year and we have established graduate housing.

We would like to become more deeply involved in the community by partnering with local and state agencies to accomplish our goals. We would like to move the men in our full time program into a facility of their own and establish an emergency shelter for women.
