The pictures below represent what we have accomplished with your help in 2016.

Keys- 88 men who graduated into stable housing out of the 115 who entered.

Shower caddy- over 1700 showers taken & 7500 pieces of clothing laundered in the Summer Shower/Laundry Outreach. The only consistent place in NKY for the homeless ran 20 hours per week from May to October.

Food/supplies- basic necessities we provide to each guest.

Bunk beds- the 312 men & women we have seen since November 1, 2016 in the emergency cold shelter.

There is still time to make a 2016 tax deductible donation or make one tomorrow and get a start on 2017. A $17 donation ensures a guest receives the basic necessitites listed in the picture. A $1,700 donation will cover 100 guests in shelter - we have already 7 of those nights this winter. emergencyshelternky.org/help-out/donate
