At Springs Rescue Mission, we measure our success by the transformed lives of the women we serve. Our Women's Shelter Program is dedicated to restoring hope, dignity, and self-sufficiency to women experiencing homelessness. Through a combination of compassionate care, comprehensive support services, and a commitment to empowering individuals, we believe that every woman can overcome homelessness and find a path to a brighter future.
“The women’s shelter is a necessary thing to be able to take the next step — it’s one step closer to being out, and it’s proof to myself that I’m doing right. I’m working my way out of homelessness. … This isa safe place to be if you’re a woman.” – Mary, shelter guest
We offer a safe and secure environment where women can find respite from the hardships of life on the streets. Our shelter facilities are clean, comfortable, and equipped with all the necessary amenities.
We understand that each woman's journey is unique. Our experienced case managers work closely with the women to assess their needs, set achievable goals, and develop personalized action plans. Through regular one-on-one meetings, we provide guidance and support to help women overcome obstacles and move toward self-sufficiency.
We offer a wide range of support to address the diverse needs of the women in our program. These services include healthcare, mental health counseling, substance abuse recovery programs, job training, life skills workshops, educational opportunities, and more. By addressing the causes of homelessness, we aim to help women to regain stability in their lives.
We foster a sense of community within our Women's Shelter Program. We organize various activities and events to promote camaraderie and friendship among the women. Additionally, we encourage participation in support groups and provide opportunities for spiritual growth and personal development. By creating a supportive network, we empower women to reclaim their lives and build a brighter future.
At Springs Rescue Mission, our top priority is helping men and women find pathways our of homelessness. The ultimate benchmark of this endeavor is seeing individuals succeed in our shelter programs and move on to permanent housing.
While permanent housing may sometimes refer to an apartment or single-family home, there are many transitional and supportive housing options for those working to overcome homelessness.
"The goal is to provide not just a roof over someone's head, but a sense of community, belonging and support as individuals work towards stability and health." - Travis Williams, Chief Development Officer
Our supportive housing programming is designed to provide a safe and stable environment for individuals who are transitioning to a medium-term or long-term housing solution.
For men and women in recovery — especially those who’ve recently completed a rehabilitation program — a sober living environment and community is of vital importance. Most sober living houses are structured around a faith-based or 12-step structure and include requirements to encourage sobriety from drugs and alcohol.
For many men and women living on the streets — and for many of you, I’m sure – pets are family.
Many homeless individuals in our community have dogs, both for companionship and protection, and they would rather stay out in the cold than have to forfeit their furry friend to stay the night in a shelter.
When you support these vulnerable men and women, you also provide safe shelter and services for their pets. While men and women take showers, eat meals, do laundry, access healthcare and get a good night of sleep, they can rest easy knowing that their beloved cat or dog is safe and cared for.
