H.O.M.E., Inc. has many programs designed to assist folks with the basic necessities of life. Food, clothing, hygiene supplies, school supplies and more.
H.O.M.E.'s gift shop, thrift store and sawmill generate a small income for H.O.M.E. while providing gifts, shingles, lumber and basic home items to our community.
H.O.M.E.'s Homeless services include: Diversion, which aims to prevent homelessness prior to entering shelter, Emergency overnight shelter across four locations, and Housing Navigation which exists to assist shelter guests with finding permanent, stable housing.
We’re proud to be among the 40 organizations across the country to be recognized this year by an independent advisory group of homelessness experts for making measurable progress on family homelessness in our community. We plan to use this generous $600.000 investment to develop a Homeless Family Outreach program and acquire a multi-unit building to serve as permanent supportive housing for families experiencing homelessness. As we continue to help families navigate through an uncertain economy, we’re especially grateful for the Day 1 Families Fund’s support, which will allow us to double down on our work to serve and provide stability for families in our community.

“Housing really is the foundation for health and well-being,”
What if doctors could write prescriptions for adequate housing? More than anything else, it might improve a person's overall health.
Providing housing to people who are chronically homeless, and women who are pregnant or who have a newborn child, is particularly important.
H.O.M.E. provides volunteer opportunities in many departments. From sorting donations to stacking firewood there is something for every skill level here at H.O.M.E., Inc.
