PEOPLE SERVING PEOPLE WITH A HAND UP, NOT A HAND OUT
Northern Lights Alliance for the Homeless Shelters has been in operation since 1999 and have increased the program from helping men to now helping women and their children, families and veterans.
Our Purpose: To support the increasing number of men, women, children and veterans that have fallen into a homeless situation. Connecting those individuals with recourses and financial assistance to get them back on their feet.
Our Vision: Northern Lights Alliance for the Homeless Shelters serve the needs of the homeless population in our community and eight surrounding counties. As people serving people, we believe in the value, dignity, and uniqueness of the whole person and strive to reflect this belief as we respond to the needs of those we serve.
As a service provider, we collaborate with other providers in ways that are compatible and beneficial to the community. As an organization, we believe that courtesy, compassion, and our open door policy are integral components in caring for the homeless and provide a service that promotes the concept of independence and self-sufficiency. We are proud to be a part of helping the poor and homeless in our communities. All of our shelters would not be available if it were not for the benevolence of other community foundations to join us in this great need. Because of our economy today we feel the obligation to support all those in need, for someday they will be able to give back to our community as responsible citizens.
We are a drug and alcohol-free facility. Some exceptions can be made as we are a low barrier shelter all winter (excluding THC).
