Emergency Shelter

The Kitchen, Inc.’s Emergency Shelter provides temporary housing for homeless women, families and single parents with children. The 13 apartment-style units are critical in getting people off the streets and on a path to permanent housing.

Case managers work with each individual to assess their needs and barriers with the goal of moving them into another housing program of The Kitchen, Inc. within 90 days. Barriers can range from mental and physical health, employment, education, legal issues, and substance abuse.

Case managers evaluate the condition, experiences and skills of residents to help them form goals and design a plan which uses these experiences, interests, and skills to move each person out of homelessness and toward independence and self-sufficiency.
