When a new family enters the shelter, it can be a difficult and scary time for children of all ages. The Children’s Services Coordinator (CSC) or other children’s staff and interns will work with each family to help with the transition of living in the emergency shelter.

Counseling Services

Each child over 5 is welcomed and encouraged to participate in receiving individual and group therapy by our counselor. There is a children’s counseling group that meets once a week during evening group time. Parents can requests counseling for their children and the CSC will make that referral.

Evening Activity Groups

Evening activity groups meet every evening from 7-8pm Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
