First Step Shelter is pleased to announce we are currently accepting referrals for adult FEMALE residents

Referrals are only accepted from Social Service Organizations; Places of Worship; Hospitals; and Law Enforcement Agencies.

Our Covid-19 quarantine protocols have been effective allowing us to reach our budgeted capacity for men.  We are now working to fill our women’s dorm and only accepting referrals for WOMEN. Male referrals will resume again in the future.

First Step Shelter is committed to helping our residents along a path from homelessness to housing
