Officially Announcing Our Capital Campaign!

“Will You Bless This House?” These words were spoken by a former guest of the William S. Davies Homeless Shelter on the day he moved into his new apartment. His time at the Shelter provided refuge and restoration while he worked toward a place of his own. On his Moving In Day, a day celebrated with abundant joy for every former guest, he asked for a blessing over his house, over his renewed life. Transforming lives is the mission and work of the Shelter. For more than a decade it has been home for nearly 4,000 guest stays. It is a safe place, a warm and dry place. That is only the beginning of what the Shelter is and the work it does. Once a guest walks through the doors, he is started on a path which will take him, step by step, from that house to his own home.

After nearly eleven years at its rented location on South Broad Street, the Shelter is ready to do the same, to fulfill the dream of a home of its own. The William S Davies Homeless Shelter has always been 100% community supported. Five years ago, that support made the purchase of a large property on E. 18th Street possible. Building plans, which grow the mission in new and exciting ways, have been drawn up by Robert Noble and Drinkard Engineering Group. Pledges of over $270,000 dollars have been made, including a 100% financial commitment from the Shelter’s Board of Directors. The time is right to complete the path towards home ownership.

Therefore it is with great excitement and enthusiasm that we officially kickoff our capital campaign. Will you bless this house?
