EXPANDING THE HOMELESS SHELTER PHASE 2
We plan to accommodate 12 beds. We will also be putting in two bathrooms and a shower in the bunkhouse.
Projected costs are $100,000.00. We are not state or federally funded.
We are an IRS-registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Sunshine has established supportive relationships with social service agencies, regional continuum of care, faith communities, educational institutions, health care facilities, law enforcement, educational institutions, and human service organizations.
Over 40 people came into Sunshine in crisis this past winter/spring (2020). Many times shelters are full and people have to be turned away. This number includes families with children and Veterans.
Our philosophy is to give a "hand up, not handouts."
Our goal is to get those in crisis a warm, safe place while they are rebuilding their lives.
We offer a warm place to lay their head, a shower, and food.
We open our hands and hearts to those in need.
We are so grateful for all of our community support. Without the support of businesses, churches, and individuals we would not have completed this mission.

I pray that when you read about the homeless in our communities that you don't have a preconceived notion of how they become homeless as the reasons vary and are very seldom the same.
