“In the wake of COVID we have had to find creative ways to support our essential work of providing shelter and support to women and families experiencing homelessness. It’s been a rough year for everyone, but it has been unimaginably tough for the families we care for,” Shelter of Flint’s Development Director, Shelly Hoffman remarked. 

“This event will provide funding that allows Shelter of Flint to continue its work of moving families from homelessness to a home of their own and there is nothing quite like the smile on a parent’s face when they learn they have a home to move their family to,”  Hoffman said. 

Shelter of Flint provides a 78-bed emergency shelter for women and families, a street outreach program, and permanent supportive housing. Shelter of Flint has been in operation since 1983, integrating programs and services with safe, affordable housing to help low income and homeless individuals and families achieve independence and stability.
