What We Do

Helping People Help Themselves

At the Sixth Street Shelter, we intervene in the crises in the lives of more than
100 families currently experiencing homelessness per year, showing genuine love to more than 200 children who need all the love they can get. Our love extends to their parents, too, as we do all we can to guide them to a more stable life in which good decisions are made, their ability to pay their bills is improved and they can get on with the lives folks like us take for granted.
