Weekend Day Shelter

WEEKEND DAY SHELTER The Weekend Day Shelter provides food and shelter on weekend days. Volunteers from over 24 groups, including local churches, other religious/community organizations, and groups of individuals purchase, prepare and serve hot meals on Saturdays and Sundays, as well as "carry out" sack lunches on Sunday afternoons. Of those who use this program regularly, approximately 32% are homeless, 68% are extremely at risk of being homeless, 25% are children, and 11% are veterans.  Served Annually: 2200+ individuals are served over 35,000 meals.

Population(s) Served

SHELTER HOME PROGRAM: Advent House owns three homes, one of which can house one family for 9-18 months and two of which provide housing for homeless individuals working through recovery to independence--this is part of a partnership with the Lansing chapter of the National Council on Alcoholism. The Shelter Home program provides transitional housing to homeless families, the next step after emergency shelter for those ready to seek permanent housing. Families commit to long-term (9-18 months) programming to identify, address and solve the problems that led to their homelessness. Served Annually: 1-2 families (3-4 adults, 4-12 children).

Population(s) Served

GOOD WORK! EMPLOYMENT The Good Work! Employment Program offers employment readiness training and job placement assistance for homeless adults (funded through the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, Veterans Administration, Dept. of Agriculture, and State of Michigan). With combined federal and state funding, this program assists homeless adults in developing the "pre-pre-employment" skills necessary to overcome obstacles and obtain stable jobs. Since its inception, this program has been committed to making its services accessible to the homeless by providing programming on site at various shelters in the Lansing area, as well as on-site at Advent House.  Therefore, we have staff on site at Volunteers of America and the Lansign City Rescue Mission, as well as Loaves & Fishes Ministry, EVE's Place (assisting victims of domestic assault), Holden House and Glass House (inpatient programs of the National Council on Alcoholism), and Haven House (an emergency and transitional shelter for families). We also have staff at the Capital Area Michigan Works Service Center with a focus on ensuring that homeless adults have full access to employment services offered at the Service Center. Served Annually: Over 150 adults.

Population(s) Served

LITERACY PROGRAM (includes Children & Family Support Program): With a small staff and large group of volunteers, this program provides literacy training, including adult basic education and high school equivalency/GED training, as well as payment for GED testing.  The program also includes recreational and learning activities for children, who are part of our Weekend Day Shelter Program.  The need  for this program has increased as participants have struggled with low-paying jobs and unstable living situations. All sessions include meals as part of the commitment of Advent House to provide a healthy and productive learning envirnoment.  Served Annually:  over 150 adults and more than 60 children
