*Due to COVID-19, we are currently operating the shelter at 50% capacity to ensure the safety of residents and staff.

Homelessness can be brought on by a variety of factors: addiction, job loss, mental or physical disability, financial insecurity, or relationship issues.

Regardless of your circumstances, Catholic Charities is here to help you back on your feet.

Case Management Services

Case management services are also available to all residents at St. Elizabeth Center.

Our staff helps individuals identify and address their unique needs: from finding employment or enrolling in benefits, addressing medical and mental health concerns, and accessing stable housing.
