Calvert Place Men’s Shelter serves adult homeless men and veterans age 18+. From the moment a new client walks into the shelter, they are shown the love of Jesus by both staff members and volunteers. The staff is prepared to address the very diverse and sometimes critical needs of each individual by providing hot meals, a comfortable bed, clothing, a warm shower, health and mental health clinics, and daily chapel service. In small Bible study groups men learn about God’s love and how He can completely transform their lives through a personal relationship with Him. On-site learning centers teach basic life skills, as well as train them for jobs that are relevant in todays’ marketplace. By taking a holistic approach to their recovery, these men leave equipped to successfully integrate into the outside world.
The shelter is able to serve up to 335 homeless men every day.
Calvert Place has secure lockers, giving each client a place to store their possessions. When a client goes through intake, he is assigned a specific bed. That same bed is his for the duration of his stay at the shelter giving him a sense of belonging.
