The Summer Shelter : Closed until Completion of Renovations
The Homeless Shelter Needs Your Help!
What is the St. James Summer Shelter?
The St. James’s Summer Shelter is a seven-week student-run transitional housing program that has run in your church facilities since 1991. The shelter seeks to improve the lives of homeless individuals by offering a comprehensive range of resources needed to transition into permanent housing and employment. By forming a collaborative partnership with the guests in a safe, comfortable, and supportive environment, St. James Summer Shelter strives towards fulfilling short-term goals while always focusing on the overarching end result. St. James works to raise awareness of homelessness and build a broad coalition against it by bringing together homeless individuals, students, and concerned members of the community.
What can you do to help?
No contribution is too small and we are grateful for any bit of support in these tough economic times. This year is particularly challenging as we prepare to find a new home with upcoming renovations. Your contributions will not only help run the shelter this summer, but will help ensure the sustainability of our program in years to come. Any donation will directly impact our program. A donation of 20dollars will sponsor one shelter guest for one day. We also welcome in-kind donations, as they help to reduce our costs and stay within a balanced budget. As a 501(c)(3) organization, all donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged with a letter of receipt.
