How Connect Helps
Connecting People to a New BeginningJack - COVID19 Took His Job & Home
At our Burnside Shelter, hundreds of men and women have their urgent and practical needs met every day. And every service comes with this message: “You are valuable, you are loved and you have not been forgotten”. Every meal, warm bed, or one of the many other services provided may become the first step on the path to hope and a home.
