Q: Is the shelter just a place for someone to spend the night?
A: No. The William S. Davies Homeless Shelters, Inc. is a comprehensive program and a community intended to assist our guests in the process of establishing self-sufficiency. We offer transitional housing to our guests.
Q: What services does the Shelter provide to its guests?
A: Our services include, but are not limited to: an individual case plan designed with the input of the guest and case manager; access to individual and group counseling resources, access to mental and physical health care resources; GED classes and testing; continued guidance and support after leaving the programs.
Q: Who can stay at the Shelter?
A: The Shelter currently serves men ages 18 and older. The Ruth and Naomi Project is currently under renovation to serve 8 single women & 4 women with children. We anticipate opening Ruth and Naomi Project in early 2019.
Q: Is there a limit on how long guests can stay?
A: No. As long as the guest remains alcohol and drug free and is making progress toward their defined case plan or 30 day stay, we will continue to support them to self-sufficiency.
Q: Are guests required to help out at the shelter?
A: Yes. Each guest has a weekly assigned chore and also is required to work 2 hours a month in the garden program.
Q: Do you receive public funding through local, state or federal governments?
A: No. We are an entirely community supported agency, which is what allows our programs to grow and change along with the needs of our guests and our community.
