Emergency Family and Single Women's Housing:
The Family & Individual Housing Units provide a secure living space for families with children, as well as single women. There are 8 private rooms available and accommodations can be made for any size family. Each unit includes beds, bedding and pillows, towels, and basic supplies. Additional beds or cribs are available as needed. The units share a large open living space, kitchenette, bathroom, and laundry. There is always space available for those in Muscatine County needing a place to stay.
Emergency Men's Housing:
Overnight housing is available for single men. At 9:00 pm each evening, our gymnasium converts into a sleeping space. The gym can accommodate up to 45 men, but solutions can be made if we have more than 45. Guests have a designated space within the gym, a mattress, bedding and pillows, towels, and basic supplies. A locker and tub are also assigned for storage of personal items. Overnight housing guests share a day room, bathroom, and laundry. Hours for rest are 10:00 pm until 5:30 am. Other sleeping hours may be arranged for those working nights. This short-term overnight shelter is designed to help guests to transition into on-site apartment living while securing an income source.
