A Place of Hope

614 Third Street South

This 10-story stucco and brick warehouse with a full basement and elevator is an emergency shelter and transitional housing for homeless families. It also serves as the main center for an extensive list of outreach services for those populations. The new home building has been rehabilitated into a project with administrative, service, school, medical clinic, and daycare activities. The basement has been made into a cafeteria to provide meals for residents.

Some of the "shelter" units are single rooms with connecting doors to allow for housing larger families when necessary; no rent is charged to homeless families. The "transitional" units have two bedrooms; rents are $265.65 per month, including utilities.
