Shelter House is Johnson County’s only homeless shelter. We have provided emergency shelter to men, women, and children, including the disabled and the elderly in Southeast Iowa since 1983. Shelter House provides safe shelter and helps people improve the quality of their lives as they move beyond homelessness.
Shelter House is much more than a roof and a bed. We provide programs and supports that help hundreds of men, women and children each year to get back on their feet. Shelter House keeps children in school, helps men and women get back to work, assists the disabled and elderly to access benefits and health care and moves individuals and families into their own homes. Simply put, Shelter House helps people move beyond homelessness.
Shelter House is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization. As a partner agency of the United Way of Johnson and Washington Counties, we have successfully met all local membership accountability standards in finance, ethics, governance, and diversity.
