Mission

Carpenter’s Shelter serves over 750 homeless and formerly homeless children and adults each year.

Carpenter’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.

Our measurable impact is demonstrated by the fact that over 90% of clients who graduate from the shelter and 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.

At Carpenter’s Shelter, we believe that every person has a right to shelter. No one shall be denied shelter or services on the grounds of race, color, national origin, creed, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, or any characteristic protected by law.
