Rebecca’s Place provides emergency shelter for single women. Services include advocacy, social service assessment, referral and access to all programs operated by Friends of the Homeless. Provides meals and referrals to medical, legal, and supportive services. Offers a resource center for shelter clients that includes clothing referrals, specialized housing information, employment case management services, education, training and social service resources.
The Rebecca’s Place ministry had some major changes in 2014. The shelter was closed in August, and women housed there were relocated to a new shelter on Van Buren Avenue. A group from our ministry went down to the new shelter in September to serve the women, and we have continued to collect donation items for the women housed there.
