The City Center and its staff, case managers, therapists, and mentors are dedicated to helping homeless, often single parent families transition from homelessness to independence. We use a variety of methodologies, frameworks, and perspectives all with Christ at the center. We do this over the course of many months – the residents and their care team put in a lot of hard work – but its all worth it. Though the housing is temporary (we are not an emergency shelter – unfortunately), it IS a safe place to call their own during that time; it is a place they can find some needed stability in their life. the City Center is a place where they can concentrate on getting their life under control. Residents are given more than just spiritual and life skills. Residents are empowered to become financially stable through a savings program and employment requirement. With this help and structure, our residents will find themselves back on their feet and on their own. All it takes is a willing heart, and determined spirit, and a heart of surrender.
