Outreach and Engagement
Launched in January 2019, our newest program is geared toward preventing homelessness and reducing the time someone experiences homelessness. Our Outreach and Engagement services will help to remove transportation barriers that threaten or prevent employment. This program can pay utility and rental arrears necessary for landlord mediation and provide security deposit assistance for those who can stabilize their current living situation without shelter intervention.
Supportive Housing Our Permanent Supportive Housing Case Manager provides supportive services to the residents of Liberty Point apartments to help them access resources necessary to maintain their housing and independence.
No Freeze Shelter We provide warmth, food and shelter to those in need during cold winter nights. Users of our No Freeze shelter are connected with Center case managers to help support them in engaging in other long-term shelter and housing options.
Soup Kitchen Supported through individual volunteers and community groups, Beth-El Center, Inc. is able to offer nutritious hot meals to shelter residents as well any community members in need. We serve a meal weekdays from 11:30am to 1:00pm and most weekends. Please refer to the monthly Meals Calendar for more information.
