The Dwelling Place
of Vermilion County
We are a faith-based ministry dedicated to the homeless and those at risk of homelessness and to providing each person we encounter acceptance, grace, compassion and friendship.
Our Mission: Serving as an advocate for the homeless and those at risk of homelessness, The Dwelling Place of Vermilion County serves as a connection to services which have a positive impact on their life's journey.
WE WILL OPEN SOON!
The Dwelling Place Day Center will be in the basement of the First Presbyterian Church, 100 N. Franklin. We still have a few things to do, but we are close to opening.
Keep an eye on the news!!
The Dwelling Place is a compassion-centered ministry dedicated to giving the homeless and those at risk of homelessness companionship and hope through Christ-like love. Our Day Center will be a safe, judgement-free culture grounded in grace, compassion and respect for everybody. Its hospitable environment will allow connections and relationships to develop.
Friendship is a valued and rewarding part of life. Through friendships we are provided a sense of belonging and purpose. Friendship boosts our happiness, improves our self-worth, and assists with coping with the difficult times of life. At the Day Center we will offer friendship to all who walk through our door.
From friendships trust is cultivated.
And once trust is established, we can work together for better days.
