We Can Help
In April of 2008, The Brooks House Shelter opened its doors to help those in need. This facility has the capability for up to 20 women and children to receive temporary shelter. There are 8 bedrooms, shared bathrooms, a kitchen, dining room, and family room. They are provided with meals, warmth in cold weather and a respite from the summer heat in a safe, comfortable and caring environment. Residents will be able to stay up 4-6 months, then will transition to their own permanent residence.
Using local agency partners, Brooks House will assist residents in locating agencies and services to meet their individual needs including but not limited to:.
Mental Health Services
Substance Abuse Counseling
Other Needs That May Arise
They will also be able to take part in family outings to be able to enjoy their newly blossoming lives, such as movies, picnics, shopping, and church services if they are so inclined.
This is truly the hand up that many people in our community have been in need of, and they will definitely have a busy time while at the Brooks House, preparing to live a life filled with hope for the future.
