Carpenter's Shelter

At Carpenter’s Shelter, we believe housing is key to stability. We offer shelter and comprehensive services for children, women, and men experiencing homelessness with the ultimate goal of transitioning those we serve to permanent, sustainable housing.
Since our inception in 1988, our mission has focused on the most under-resourced residents of our community. All those we serve are low-income; a majority face the challenges of job loss, reduced work hours, accumulated debt, domestic violence, lack of family support, mental illness, substance abuse, prior incarceration, or history of eviction.
