Emergency shelter

Emergency Shelter 

Families or individuals in immediate need of place to stay, can find help at one of our shelters. No program commitment is necessary for these short-term stays.

Transients are welcome to seek shelter as long as they are alcohol and drug free. We provide access to shower facilities and basic toiletries. Individuals will also receive a meal, a change of clothes, a bed for the night and an invitation to take part in the evening's chapel services. We're not able to reserve beds so we recommended calling ahead to check availability before arriving at our facilities.

The Men’s Shelter check-in time is 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM, Sunday through Saturday, at 1090 Mondon Hill Rd., Brooksville, FL 34601. Call us at (352) 799-2912 ext. 103 for more information.

The Women and Family Shelter's check-in is 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM, Sunday through Saturday, at 1163 Howell Ave., Brooksville, FL 34601. Call us at (352) 799 -2912 ext. 109 for more information.
