Stephen Center

The Stephen Center partners with the community, families and individuals to overcome homelessness, addiction and poverty. Stephen Center, Inc. serves the homeless and low-income men, women and children by offering an emergency shelter, the Hero program for people recovering from addiction, and a transitional living program.

The Stephen Center is located at 2723 Q Street. The facility is home to the Pettigrew Emergency Shelter that works with men, women and children who are homeless. This homeless shelter is unique because it is a sobriety and drug free environment. The shelter is open for those who are in need from a few nights to weeks or longer depending on need and availability of space/openings. Long term housing is available through their Permanent Supportive Housing program utilizing their new apartment-style facilities.

In 2015, the Outreach Committee donated furnishings for the Completely Kids Room in the new facility. This room and all of the furnishings are specifically tailored for children served through the emergency shelter and near-by low-income housing. The room is a space for after school resources, homework and reading/literacy assistance, and human services support.
