Winter Shelter for the Homeless

As of this writing, Housing El Dorado has secured 3 nights per week of shelter through their Pathways Winter Lodging Program. Shelter will begin January 1st and run through March 31st, 2022. Currently, there are 3 area churches participating, though there are hopes to add more. A thank you to Discovery Hills Evangelical Church, Green Valley Community Church, and Foothills United Methodist Church for coming together to make the Winter Lodging Program a reality for the un-housed of the western slope.

Michael…A Success Story

Over the last few weeks, JSS has had the opportunity to help an unhoused individual, Michael.

Michael was put in contact with JSS when he was dropped off at the local Social Security office with nothing but his wheelchair, the clothes on his back, and his service dog, Pooh. Our new President, Colleen, was able to assist Michael with straightening out his SSI, visiting Health & Human Services for emergency benefits, and securing him housing at an area Board & Care Home. Additionally, she was able to find a loving, long term foster for Pooh.
