Emergency Housing

Each night, Cherry Street provides safe, free shelter for nearly 230 men and women who would otherwise sleep on the street or remain in an abusive situation. For some, it’s the first night they’ve slept safely in a very long time.

Cherry Street is more than food, clothing and shelter. Our redemptive programming is built around one on one mentorship. We care more about who a person is, rather than what a person has become.

We are the only organization in our region to offer 3 meals a day, 7 days a week, free of charge to anyone who needs them. We provide nearly 900 meals to guests and members of the community in need every day.
