A Partnership of churches Serving the Homeless

Member of the Out-Wayne County Homeless Services Coalition

The mission of ChristNet is to provide temporary overnight emergency housing assistance and other services to homeless men, women, and children. We do this by providing a safe secure sleeping space indoors; offering three meals per day; and by maintaining a case manager who identifies and coordinates mainstream resources to help those in need restabilize their lives. ChristNet promotes cooperation among churches and non-profit organizations as we strive to assist our brothers and sisters in God’s family.

Since its inception in 1993, the Coalition, an informal partnership between over thirty agencies, organizations and governmental units, has led the effort to create a more unified front in combating the causes of homelessness in Out-Wayne County. The member organizations who became involved did so to form a continuum of care that would address the specific needs of Out-Wayne County’s homeless population while fostering better communication and closing service gaps. By basing service delivery on customer need rather than agency or funder-driven priorities, Coalition was strengthened. Using these principles as their framework, the Coalition established clear and definitive goals that continue to move its efforts today.
