HELP IS AVAILABLE
If you are 18 years or older and live in Shelby County, single, mentally and physically stable, battling homelessness, domestic violence and an addiction, you can call (901) 353-0927 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. A member of our staff will listen and answer any questions you might have. The information you share with us is confidential.
We will conduct a brief screening of your needs over the phone. If our program is a good fit for you, we will schedule an initial intake appointment with the executive director, Wanda Taylor. At that time, you will be asked to bring two forms of identification. If our program is not a good fix, we will do everything we can to help you find another shelter.
Please be prepared to provide personal information, which we use to determine eligibility. Admission is determined based on bed availability. If you qualify and a bed is available, you will be able to move in the same day. We do not hold beds. If a bed is not available, your name will be added to our waiting list and someone will notify you once a bed is available.
