Shared Blessings is not a temporary or emergency, over-night, drop-off shelter, but a transitional housing ministry. The ministry provides a temporary home for the homeless while teaching the skills needed to get a job and live on their own.
The ministry is faith-based and connects people with agencies that can help them with their needs.
The people we provide shelter for are from all walks of life, some have found their way to SFC for the first time. Our goal is to offer a hand up by connecting people with agencies in the county that offer help with gaining employment, medical care, mentoring, housing, etc., as needed.
In addition to providing shelter, Shared Blessings also provides daily care items such as razors, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc. Shared Blessings ministry is supported solely by area churches, corporate and individual donations, and gifts from civic and service organizations. We hope that in working together, sharing blessings, we can end homelessness in our community.
