In 2003, Susan Seagraves collected dollar bills from friends and strangers in Rome to start a homeless shelter. That October, she opened the door and accepted the first guest of the William S. Davies Homeless Shelter, affectionately named in honor of her dear friend and mentor.

That was 10 years ago. Since then, we remain a 100% Community Supported haven for individuals transitioning from homelessness to self-sufficiency and a home of their own. Thousands of guests have found shelter. Dignity. Hope. Thousands of lives have been changed for the better. All of this, because of your support. Thank you.
