Shared Blessings Transitional Housing
Shared Blessings is a faith-based ministry established to provide temporary shelter for men, women, and families that are homeless in St. Francois County. The people we provide shelter for are from all walks of life, some have found their way to St. Francois County for the first time. Our goal is to offer a hand up by connecting people with agencies in the county that offer help with gaining employment, medical care, mentoring, housing, etc., as needed. In addition to providing shelter, Shared Blessings also provides daily care items such as razors, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc. Shared Blessings ministry is supported solely by area churches, corporate and individual donations, and gifts from civic and service organizations. We hope that in working together, sharing blessings, we can end homelessness in our community. All applications are taken via phone. Unfortunately, we cannot give admittance to all who apply. IF, an applicant has committed a heinous crime against another, is not medically stable, either physically or mentally, if applicant has multiple rental evictions or is on the sexual predators list they cannot become a Shared Blessings resident. IF, we must decline your application, we refer to other resources not in this area. But, there are no other transitional housing ministries such as Shared Blessings. We will offer food to people who need food. We must authorize arrival at Shared Blessings, but we operate as a food pantry for those who cannot live within the walls of Shared Blessings.
