Shelter Services

Shelter Services at the Sulzbacher Center

A safe place.

Sulzbacher offers a stable environment for homeless men, women and children. For families, individual dorm rooms allow parents and children to live together as they find their way home. Between sixty and ninety children call the center home on any given day.

Support and accountability.

Along with a bed, a case manager is assigned to every resident of Sulzbacher. Residents work with case managers one-on-one to develop a plan that meets their particular needs. While the average stay at the center is three months, residents may stay longer if their circumstances require it. Regular case management meetings ensure that residents stay on track. Our program restores stability to the lives of the men, women and children who come to us for help.


Services we offer:

·         LifeSkills classes

·         GED and other education programs

·         Model children’s program

·         Three healthy and nutritious meals a day.

·         Individual and Family Case management
