The Women’s Shelter has a Home!!!

We are so excited!!! We just closed on a building we will be using The Gathering Place Mission Emergency Shelter for Women and children.
Renovations are about to commence. We need to set up the place and get it ready.
The shelter will be at 115 N. Water Street, and we hope to be able to utilize it by the end of September.


If you want to help with the renovation, please use our Volunteer Application to let us know.
We are also still looking for the following items:

  • Metal twin beds/bunk beds
  • Linens
  • Towels
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Non-perishable food items

We do have plenty of clothing, so please donate any clothing you want to share to the Amen House. We also have plenty of furniture (minus the beds), so please donate any furniture to the Scott County Habitat For Humanity Restore.
Thank you to everyone who is making this a reality!
