Season of Giving: Carpenter's Shelter Thanksgiving Drive

Helping the homelessness at Carpenter’s Shelter is so much more than giving those in need a warm place to sleep. At Carpenter’s Shelter we work to identify and correct the root cause of homelessness. We are dedicated to the success of our residents while they’re living in the shelter but more importantly, once they are living on their own in the community. Statistically, 28% of individuals’ recently experiencing homelessness become homeless again within a year. Thanks to your continued support, last year, only 5% of our residents became homeless again. This is a tremendous step toward our mission to help the homeless achieve sustainable independence.
