Need Assistance?

If you or someone you know are in need of help, please don’t hesitate to contact us. The person wishing to become a part of our program must call for a preliminary phone screening with our shelter manager.

What We Offer

  • A clean, safe shelter for women, and their children (girls of any age and boys 10 years and younger)

  • Financial management instruction and practice

  • Personal Biblical counseling and mentoring program

  • Entry workforce experience and education

  • We foster attitudes of co-operation and cohesiveness through our “open-air” living arrangement in our shelter. While privacy is afforded, there are no “private rooms.”

  • Ladies are moved toward learning to deal with a 40-hour work week by applying themselves to required homework assignments and completing a total of 40 service hours per week, including job searching, if they are not employed elsewhere.

  • We help women receive the financial assistance available to them and their children. Our food pantry provides staples to help stretch the food dollars of these families.


  • Commit to our 9-month program; we are not a check-in/check-out shelter

  • If unemployed, they will begin actively, daily seeking a job. Unemployed or part-time working clients are required to complete service hours in the Tender Hearts Thrift Store, which funds our shelter program.

  • Submit to our no alcohol or drugs policy, on or off campus, for duration of the program. Periodic alcohol and drug testing is required.
