Housing & Shelter Services

If you’re homeless (or at risk), struggle with addiction or mental health issues, and need a place to go during the day, Mel’s Place is for you. You get all of the typical benefits of a day shelter—hot showers, food, company, a safe space—but also whatever help is within our power to help you get your life on track.

This support ranges from helping you apply for social services you qualify for (including getting your birth certificate), to referring you to food, housing, support, and employment opportunities. Veterans can also get specialized advice and referrals once a week.

Do you have a severe persistent mental illness you’re trying to live with? Are you homeless (or at risk), struggling with addiction or mental health issues, and needing an affordable and safe place to live?

This program offers housing that stays matched to your income. Once your housing needs are met, this frees up time and energy to focus on building a fulfilling and stable life for yourself.
