My name is Calvin Grith. I am developing a web page for the Pilgrim Church Shelter. I am looking forward toward learning HTML and providing the sbelter with an online presence. This is great, since I stay at the shelter sometimes.
The United Homes Adult Shelter welcomes you as our guest and hopes that your stay here will be as comfortable as possible. The program here is not as structureed as you might be used to, however,for the comfort,safety and well-being of all guests and staff,certain policies and procedures have to be followed,
Our Mission Statement commits us to provide shelter.food,transitional and other supportive services to the homeless in a manner consistent with the principles of dignity,love for the person,and a return to independent living. We will do all we can to live up to this goal and ask for your feedback,should you ever see a way for us to improve.
This Brochure is intended to answer most of your questions and staff is available to help with any others you may have.
