But the Shepherds House needs some help of its own. They have struggled to raise enough money to keep the doors open in recent months.
Executive Director Curt Floski is asking for the community's help. "The last quarter, October, November, December, we depend on almost fifty percent of our budget. And December has not developed as we would have hoped. We're hoping we can finish this month out strong."
The annual budget for the Shepehrds House is 350-thousand dollars and comes almost exclusively from individual donations.
In the last year, the hose has provided 25-thousand meals and 10 thousand nights of shelter.
