Maryhaven’s Homeless Programs serves as a lifeline to homeless men, women and families.
The Engagement Center at Maryhaven provides a refuge for publicly inebriated homeless men and women, and we extend numerous invitations to help people begin rebuilding their lives. The center shelters 42 men and eight women per night and is open year round.
In order to be admitted to the program, individuals must be:
- 18 years of age or older
- Transported by Reach Out Workers or Safety Officers
- Permanently or temporarily without a home
- Publicly under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
The Maryhaven Outreach Program, travels throughout the community to reach those living “on the land” to encourage and assist them in finding housing and treatment.
Our Commons at Chantry support services team joins the Community Shelter Board’s Rebuilding Lives network, striving to help formerly homeless, men, women and families achieve sobriety and help them restore their lives from addictive disorders allowing opportunity for them to sustain stable housing.
