When the street has become the only place to call home, men and women and women with children come to CRM’s emergency shelter on a nightly basis.
CRM provides our guests with a safe environment. Guests have the opportunity to shower, enjoy a meal and leave with clean clothing in the morning. Men and women using overnight services are encouraged to attend nightly chapel service.
The New Life Inn on State Street serves as overnight shelter for men, while women and women with children are housed at the Henriksen Women’s Center at CRM’s McDuff Avenue location.
For many guests, Emergency Shelter Services become a gateway into the LifeBuilders Program.
