At the Sixth Street Shelter, we offer 25 private apartments and can accommodate homeless families ranging in size from 2, up to 12 people. When a family moves in, they are greeted by a clean and inviting space, full stocked with everything needed during their stay. In addition to supplies, we also make sure the apartment has functional lighting, major appliances, heat and/or window fans, window coverings for privacy and minimal scuffs and marks on walls and furniture. When a family moves out, they are invited to take any necessary supplies with them, except for appliances and furniture. They return the apartment to a base level of cleanliness and a volunteer group will come in to “adopt” it, giving the apartment a deeper clean, painting and doing some minor repair work if necessary and finally restocking it, decorating it and making it ready to receive the next family. We're looking for folks to volunteer to help us get these items together in a box, and drop them off at the Shelter during these Covid times. We would ask for the donations to be for a family of 4, and include the items listed below! Typical Apartment Needs: Bedding (twin sized sheets, blankets, pillows) Personal Hygiene supplies (toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, conditioner, baby bath, feminine hygiene products, deodorant) Cleaning supplies (mop, broom, dustpan, bleach-free cleaners, gloves, dish soap) Tall kitchen trash cans and liners Toilet paper, paper towels Towels for bath and kitchen Microwave-safe dishes and utensils Pots & Pans, cooking utensils Child-friendly dinnerware Curtains and/or blinds Floor Mats & Area Rugs Occasionally the dining set, couch, armchair or other furniture needs to be replaced.

Mentoring

The Lazarus House is a program that offers a place to live for individuals who are recently released from jail. When someone is eligible for parole, they must present their parole agent with a home plan to be approved. Due to a lack of income and support, they may languish in prison until they find an acceptable housing option. Lazarus House offers them the housing support that they need. We are looking for individuals or groups who would be interested in "adopting" a resident for their first 90 days when they are first released from prison. The mentor would meet with them on their "move in" day. The mentor will create a package of immediate needs - like bedding, toiletries, and personal care items. The new resident will need to report to their parole agent within the first day or two. The mentor may assist with bus route information, enrolling in public assistance/ EBT, and registering them at the employment office. Lastly, the mentor should meet with, or have a phone conversation with their client once a week. We believe that with these supports, that we can make a difference and give someone a second chance and reduce the likelihood of recidivism. The Lazarus House now also assists youth who are homeless or aging out of foster care, adults living with mental illness, and women released from prison.
