Great Work Requires Great People
We can’t do it alone, and without an amazing staff of volunteers, there’s no way we can meet the needs of our community.
Interfaith Community PADS shelter program is located at 1001 West 8th Street behind Lighthouse Outlet Mall. It is the former Sacred Heart Catholic Church building which has been the center of community help since its construction.
Since 2001, we have sheltered our homeless in the basements of local churches, and we continue to be thankful for the years of commitment and hospitality demonstrated by each establishment. In 2020, with the help from the community and local businesses, our goal of securing a place of our own became a reality when we moved to Sacred Heart Church. We now have one location for our men’s and women’s shelter making it easier to find us and to operate.
