Our Lighthouse Emergency Shelter is a 24-hour, seven days a week shelter offered to single women and mothers with children (boys up to age 10 – some exceptions made up to age 12). There is a 30-day stay limit (extensions can be granted for up to six months if appropriate).
Shelter intake appointments can be made from 9:00 am – 3:30 pm Monday through Friday. To qualify for our program, women with children must be biological parents or be able to demonstrate legal custody. Those with a disability, pregnancy, or other physical issues will be accommodated to a reasonable extent.
In order to process your application, you will need the following:
- Women must have a valid ID or must obtain it with the first 72 hours of stay
- Children must have a social security card, birth certificate, or another form of ID
- All shelter guests must have a negative TB test
