A bed instead of pavement.
Fresh and healthful food instead of what can be found on the street.
Encouragement to replace neglect.
Companionship and stimulation that motivate.
Love and prayer to nourish the spirit.
What does it take to change the lives of the homeless?
All of these.
During the past year, we sheltered 142 guests. We shelter up to 36 men at one time in our new shelter. Since 2008, DIMH has sheltered nearly 800 homeless men. All guests have access to employment counseling. Despite these difficult economic times, we continue to see approximately 60% of our guests leaving with full-time employment and access to local housing.
