The Dwelling Place will be a welcoming space that provides  companionship, a living room where our friends can relax, visit, watch TV, or play board games.  Then there will be the following:

  • Essentially Basic Hygiene and Household Care Pantry

  • Shower facilities

  • Laundry facilities

  • Phone charging stations

  • Computer stations  & Internet access

  • Local resources

The core mission of The Dwelling Place is to develop relationships with those who feel lost, displaced or powerless. The Dwelling Place is a daytime safe haven that provides an array of services for the homeless, at-risk individuals and families and low-income residents of the community.
The Dwelling Place is an open door, when others are closed, and offers our friends daytime sanctuary and basic survival services. Our friends can find daytime reprieve from the winter cold and be offered a hot cup of coffee and from the summer heat and find waiting a cold glass of ice tea. Our friends will be greeted with smiles and welcoming words. Our friends will be accepted and treated with dignity. 
The Dwelling Place is a place of support, of hope, and of friendship and connections! 
Knock at the door,
and it will open for you
to find grace in a time of need.
Luke 11:9 & Hebrews 4:16 
Come Visit Us
When We Are Open!

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.
