About

Mission: Carpenter’s Shelter supports the homeless to achieve sustainable independence through shelter, guidance, education and advocacy.

Carpenter’s Shelter serves over 1,000 homeless and formerly homeless children and adults each year.

Carpenter’s Shelter’s comprehensive continuum of care offers continuous services, aiding the chronically homeless and shelter residents through their transition back into independent living. We empower our clients to address the issues which led them to homelessness and provide the tools necessary to achieve lasting independence.

90% of clients who continue on with our community case management program remain in permanent housing during their first year out of the shelter, which is a very vulnerable time
