Shelter of Flint

Homelessness is not just a national issue. Right here in Genesee County there are more than 200 individuals living in emergency shelters every night; countless others are sleeping on a friend’s couch, living on the streets, sleeping in their cars, or staying in abandoned buildings.

Housing is the most basic of needs that plays a role in a family’s well-being. Working under the principle that housing is a right, not a reward, Shelter of Flint's comprehensive approach to combating homelessness is intended to move our clients along a continuum of care that connects families to community resources and works on solving the root cause of their homelessness.

We serve more than 1,000 adults and children each day through our programs:

  • emergency shelter
  • transitional housing
  • permanent supportive housing
  • supportive services
  • housing units

Our emergency shelter fills to maximum capacity virtually every night. 60% of the people who come into our emergency shelter are children under the age of 10. Roughly 40% of people who come to us for emergency shelter are homeless for the first time.
