About Churches United for the Homeless

Location:

1901 1ST AVE N, MOORHEAD, MN 56560, US

Mission Statement

The mission of Churches United is to provide "shelter and support in a spiritual setting." This mission emphasizes our three main tenets: (1) shelter- to furnish a temporary emergency shelter for homeless people (2) support -to refer residents to appropriate services such as job service, social services, mental health services and programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (3) spiritual -to offer spiritual ministry and emotional affirmation to homeless people. We are able to provide services not only to our residents who are staying at Churches United, but to the community as a whole. We offer three meals a day during the week, two hot meals each day on the weekends and after-school and evening snacks. We are able to offer a food pantry open once a week. Our thrift store is free and open to the public two times a week, with clothing, shoes, bedding, furniture, toys, books and a variety of household items available.

Description

We are located at 1901 1st Avenue North in Moorhead, MN, right next to a city bus stop, making transportation to and from our facility easily accessible for the community. Our facility was formerly a furniture store, so we have large space in the basement for our food pantry, free thrift store, and storage for basic shelter supplies and transitional housing needs such as furniture. The main floor includes a community center that is open to the public 8:ooam-8:oopm, seven days a week. There is lounge space for people to sit, public phones for resident and community use as well as computers, and a large dining room for meals or general gathering space. Our chapel provides space for dally morning devotions, periodic bible studies, resident meetings and gathering space for volunteer orientations. Our main floor also houses all of our offices, welcome desk, medication room, hygiene products rooms, laundry room for residents, and public restrooms. All eight of our family rooms and our women's dorm are located on the main level, most of which surround the family and women's lounge. The fenced-in children's playground and outside area is accessible through the family lounge area. The second floor houses all of our men, in two 11-bed dorm rooms and two Group Residential Housing rooms, surrounding the men's lounge area. We have two rooms on main floor that can be assigned as needed for handicapped accessibility.
