Share, as an active participant in the community, believes in the importance of every individual as part of that community. In order to fulfill this belief, Share will provide from the strength of the community: meals, temporary and transitional shelter, counseling, and referrals to services for those lacking resources.
Share operates 4 shelters for the homeless, a Hot Meal Program, Street Outreach, Transitional and Permanent Housing.
Share's Mission Statement: Share believes every person counts. Together we pursue a stronger community by building relationships, advocating for equitable access to housing and food stability while empowering every individual to grow and thrive.

This is such a worthwhile organization. After volunteering, you leave with a great feeling knowing you have made a big difference in the lives of the homeless men, women, and children you serve. When you are able to prepare, cook and serve food to these people who have nowhere to go and are hungry. You feel you've done something great. You are given an opportunity to look into the eyes of those you serve, and see that even though they are victims of circumstance and misfortune, they still have a lot of dignity. This is such a rewarding way to help your community, and feel great knowing you've served in a wonderful cause.
