The mission of the Light At The Inn Homeless Shelter is to provide support for the homeless in the Dickinson County area through the cooperative efforts of an interfaith coalition that will offer a safe emergency shelter with meals throughout the winter months.
Shelter is open during the season at 6pm daily and closes at 7am.
The season usually starts early November and runs into the spring. All guests must be 18 years or older. Please click below for more information.
Light at the Inn Homeless Shelter volunteer training sessions: Training is being held as needed. Click for Schedule.
Is there really a need in our area?
Yes, and the need is greater than many of us realize. Homeless statistics for Dickinson County are in the hundreds. Fortunately, the number of “true” homeless is less, but not even one person should be left out in the cold.
