A ROTATING

HOMELESS SHELTER

The ICRH is a seasonal, rotating shelter. Each week, a different host site opens their doors to ICRH guests and serves as warm, safe place for those in need. Along with the host sites, other churches or organizations will serve as partners who may not possess the space or resources to house ICRH guests but, provide support to the host site. Presently, the ICRH partners with 35 host churches and partners

 

Every day during the shelter season, due to COVID-19, the day shelter is open from 8 am to 6:30 pm. Lunches are provided by the Isabella County Soup Kitchen. I-Ride and Stargazer Transportation, two very generous ICRH partners, provide transportation for ICRH guests to their destination from the day shelter to the host site where dinner is provided.
