Organizations in our community are not only concerned about people who are homeless, they are taking concrete steps to create housing for vulnerable families and individuals. ShelterCare is a local nonprofit, organized more than four decades ago to serve homeless families. For a quarter-century, the organization has been providing transitional support for families leaving shelter. Their focus is on families, persons with mental illness, and those with brain injuries.
