McCausland Men’s Shelter
The McCausland Men’s shelter offers three levels of care to those in need. The shelter has emergency shelter beds available to those in need. Each resident interested in long-term shelter goes through our gateway dorm, completes an assessment and if eligible is placed in the program. During cold weather special accommodations are made so that every individual has a warm bed and a hot meal.
Avis Arbor Women and Children’s Shelter
Single women and their children are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population in the U.S., and Southwestern Pennsylvania is no different. In response to this growing need, City Mission provides shelter to forty-two women and children at Avis Arbor.
The City Mission is thankful for each individual who has served in the military and because of this we have devoted a house in our program specifically to this population and we will be opening Patriot House a Veteran’s Shelter in Summer of 2018! Residents in our current Veterans’ House – Joshua House – participate in the Life Recovery Program and also receive care from local veterans’ services. Research shows that veterans recover best when they are surrounded by other veterans. The City Mission is building relationships with Veterans’ organizations and is also working to create a program to meet the specific needs of this population.
