For almost twenty years, Inn from the Cold has operated as an agency of last resort for those children and their families who find themselves, literally, with no place else to go. We go far beyond provision of shelter, food, and clothing. Our services also focus on the many support needs that ensure children and their families begin the process of recovering their dignity, their self-worth, their independence, and their hope. We offer shelter, sanctuary, and healing through an integrated continuum of services that includes emergency shelter, instrumental needs, primary medical care, case management, therapeutic early childhood programming, supported housing, and an open door policy to all in need.
In 2014, 2,297 children and their families called Inn from the Cold home during a period of crisis and of them more than half of our guests were children. This was a 130% increase in demand for our shelter services and we operated over capacity got 97% of the year with an average length of stay of 57 days.Sadly, children and their families are the fastest growing demographic impacted by homelessness and we remain committed to a vision of a community where no child or family is homeless.
Our door is open 24/7, 365 days a year and we turn no family away.
