Joseph’s House provides emergency shelter or support services to an average of 800 men, women and children yearly. Approximately 550 individuals stay in our emergency shelters for adults, families with children, or our seasonal overnight shelter for single men. The agency also provides homeless street outreach, and legal services. The agency operates three innovative permanent apartment programs for single adults or families with children who have experienced prolonged and frequent episodes of homelessness. Central to Joseph’s House mission is its non-judgmental provision of services. The staff works to build relationships based on each guest’s & tenant’s strengths and capacities. Treating each person with dignity & respect, and promoting self-determination empowers guests and tenants to make healthier choices.

We need your help. We have started a month long crowd funding to buy a much needed new truck. Please visit http://igfn.us/vf/mayday to see how you can help.
We are trying to raise enough money for a new-to-us truck – our one and only, old, old workhorse of a vehicle can no longer do it’s necessary tasks: picking up food donations and other donated items, or moving families to apartments. We need a replacement and fast!
Please consider giving a small donation $10, $25 or $50 or send this link to some of your friends via email or on Facebook or Twitter! If you give there is a simple, one-click way to send a “I gave, will you” message or tweet to anyone you wish.

If a lot of people give just a little we can meet our goal and buy the used vehicle we have on hold.
Thank you all!
