Churches United for the Homeless serves as shelter for over 650 homeless men, women and families annually. CUFH works to address the root cause of homelessness by increasing incomes and connecting residents to community services with a goal of increasing housing stability and preventing a return to shelter. The team at Churches United for the Homeless partners with various agencies such as the Veterans Administration, HRA Clay County, New Life Center, Dorothy Day House, Gladys Ray Shelter, Stepping Stone, and Sanford Health. We work together to accommodate and serve the homeless population in this region.
Access to case management and a Shelter Faith Community Nurse (SFCN) are available to shelter guests. The nurse also promotes and enhances wellness in the lives of shelter guests and staff by addressing the needs of mind, body, and spirit in a holistic manner with a focus on appropriate usage of health care services, access to care, and advocacy.
