Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc. offers services to its program participants to facilitate their desired transition into housing of their own choosing.
Mental Health Assistance
The stresses of homelessness strain those who deal every day with housing insecurity. Some also deal with medical health problems, mental health problems, difficulties due to their legal history and substance abuse issues.
Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc. contracts with professionals in the community to ensure participants have ready access to mental health services. HMSI also utilizes the outreach of the Vera French Community Mental Health Clinic.
Life Skills Classes
Regularly scheduled small group classes provide opportunities for participants to acquire skills that will help them gain employment and strengthen their abilities.
Adult clothing is available free of charge on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 AM until 11 AM. This is used clothing that has been donated from members of the community and sorted, sized and arranged by volunteers. Volunteer help is welcome each Monday and Wednesday to oversee the clothing distribution. Contact Shelter if you’re available to assist.
