EMERGENCY SHELTER PROGRAM
Since 1937, Union Mission has been offering help and hope to those most in need in the greater Savannah area. Through the support of generous donors and volunteers, Union Mission is able to provide a 90-day shelter program that goes beyond providing a safe place to sleep and offers clients a real chance to change their lives for good. Union Mission emergency shelters offer case management and access to an array of supportive services that work to address clients’ medical, mental health, and employment needs in order to help them permanently end their homelessness.
Below is an overview of the emergency shelter process at Union Mission:
HOW WE HELP
More than shelter, Grace House is a place to begin again. Opened in 1987, Grace House offers immediate temporary housing and supportive services for up to 31 men in need. Grace House is located at 120 Fahm Street, right next to the Chatham Area Transit station.
Family comes first – even when you’re homeless. Women and children are the fastest growing population of homeless in America. Union Mission provides emergency shelter for women with children through The Magdalene Project. During the 90-day shelter stay, clients receive supportive services that help put them on the road to self-sufficiency. The Magdalene Project can accomidate up to 20 woman and children.
