OVERNIGHT SHELTER IS NOW FOR WOMEN ONLY AND AVAILABLE YEAR-ROUND
Due to the demand for a women’s shelter in the City of Reading and the increase of women without a home, we are now a WOMEN ONLY OVERNIGHT SHELTER YEAR ROUND, 365 DAYS A YEAR. Men are encouraged to go to the Hope Rescue Mission for overnight accomodations. While men are not permitted to stay overnight, they are invited to come to our MORNING DROP-IN CENTER (details below).
Those seeking homeless services must report to our shelter at 246 North Ninth Street ONLY. There are no homeless services at our 940 Spruce Street site.
We can be reached by phone at (484) 869-2126.
If you are not able to reach someone at the above number you may call: 610-207-5184 Emergency only please!
Men and women are welcome every day of the year from 6:00 am to 10:00 am. We provide breakfast, coffee, showers, a mailing address, lockers, toiletries, encouragement, spiritual guidance, and hope. This program targets those without a home, currently living outdoors, but all are welcome free of charge. The program runs from 6:00 am til 10:00. Breakfast is served each morning following our daily Bible devotion from 7:00 until 8:00.
We offer overnight shelter for women but there are currently no accommodations for families or minors. Cots are provided along with pillows and blankets. We also provide free of charge: showers, a place to receive mail, lockers (when available), toiletries, both breakfast (7:00am) and supper (6:00pm), and laundry (one outfit per person), encouragement, spirit guidance and hope!
Plan to arrive early to make sure you get a cot (first come, first served). Plan to have supper with us at 6:00. No admittance after 10:00pm. Please bring ID. DO NOT COME IF YOU ARE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL OR DRUGS.
LORD, through all generations YOU have been our home. Psalm 90:1
