ChristNet Services Nighttime Shelter Program is a seasonal shelter program open from the second Sunday in October through the the end of May.
Registration for any open beds is completed during the Daytime Program from 7:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. daily. Unfortunately the demand for overnight shelter is high it may take several calls before we have any open beds available. We do encourage people to call daily as the number of open beds may change daily.
When families with children are seeking emergency housing, efforts are made to secure housing for them at either the Samartis Family Center, a shelter that accepts families with children 18 and under or at First Step, a domestic violence shelter. If space at these family-oriented shelters is not available, ChristNet Services may be able to provide shelter based on space available in our Nighttime Shelter Program until more stable housing can be arranged.
Guests depart from the intake center to the host church via the ChristNet van Between 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Upon arrival at the host church, a hot supper is served. Male and female guests are provided with separate sleeping areas using light mattresses and bedding that is moved weekly between ChristNet host churches. Most host sites follow a 10:00 p.m. “lights out” policy. Some churches have shower facilities that are made available to the guests. All host churches offer guests toiletry items essential for good personal hygiene.6999
