Shelter Care Ministries was established in 1984 by Emmanuel Episcopal Church as a response to the needs of a growing homeless population. The programs have expanded since then to include Jubilee Center, a daytime drop-in center serving individuals with chronic mental illness; emergency/transitional or permanent supportive housing programs for families that are homeless; a drop-in day center (MAYA’S House) for children who are homeless; and Careers & MORE, which prepares clients for the job market by providing classes, coaching and support.
