Brooks House Services
In April of 2008, Brooks House opened its doors as a transitional, non-emergency shelter to help those in need. This facility has the capacity for up to 28 women and children to receive temporary shelter. There are 10 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.
