Serving and strengthening the community by providing emergency shelter, resources, and supportive services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.


  • Collaborate with community organizations to address the unique needs of those experiencing homelessness.  
  • Equip individuals and families to build independent, healthy and stable lives, through emergency shelters and supportive programming.   
  • Strive to be an agent of change to end homelessness.


To achieve our mission and realize our vision all activities are underpinned by the following values:
  • A commitment to respond to the specific needs of our residents. We do not shy away from difficult cases that
    require perseverance, understanding, and care.
  • To work with residents as an individual, supporting them to set achievable and realistic goals that will enable
    them to work towards a safe, sustainable and bright future.
  • To help our residents to realize the value of their labor and the contribution they can make to build a better
    society for all.
  • To foster and grow a community of residents and volunteers built on a commitment to care, understanding
    and mutual respect. Community CARES is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its residents,
    staff, and volunteers.
  • To understand that tackling homelessness requires a grasp of complex problems and ‘wrap around’ solutions
    that must address the practical, emotional and social challenges that our residents face.
