Our seasonal shelter is open November through April. SAM’s House provides temporary shelter for men, women, and children who are experiencing homelessness during the winter months. Guests are also provided with personal care items and meals to meet their basic needs.
Guest Check in is 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. and Guest Check out: 8:00 a.m. No pets are allowed in the shelter, but we will work with you to find a temporary home for your pet. In order to keep our guests, staff, and volunteers safe and secure we perform background checks, the following will result in denied entry to SAM's House: 1. Under the Influence of Drugs/Alcohol, 2. Possession of Weapons, 3. Outstanding Warrants, 4. Conviction for Violent Crime, 5. Conviction for Sexual Crime.
Steps to Success
The Steps to Success Program is designed for SAM’s House guests. The program guides individuals who are homeless to community resources, including federal and state programs. It also expands into teaching life skills that will aid them to getting back on their feet.
Resource Day / SAM25 Resource Center
Need help? We are available every Tuesday from noon - 2 p.m. to help provide information relative to employment, housing and other needs. This program is available to all community members who are in need of assistance. In the future, SAM25 plans to have a Resource Center at our new location (See SAM25 Capital Campaign information for more details).
This is not up and running yet, but our future goal is to add a community clinic to provide the uninsured with medical and dental care, as well as assistance in obtaining health care insurance through the Affordable Care Act.
