Care For the Homeless fights homelessness by delivering high-quality and client-centered health care, human services and shelter to homeless individuals and families, and by advocating for policies to ameliorate, prevent and end homelessness.

Care For the Homeless stands in solidarity with our brothers and sisters fighting for racial and social justice.

We opened our first transitional women’s shelter, Susan’s Place, in 2008. We’ve placed over 1,000 women in permanent housing since then. We plan to add more shelters in 2019 and 2020, so that we can continue to bring essential services to those in need and end homelessness. Click for the latest in shelter news.
