Since 1991, Shelters of Saratoga has been providing services and housing options for people experiencing homelessness. Regardless of why or how people come to us, our goal remains the same -- to place participants in permanent housing. Nearly 250 people work toward this goal at our Walworth Street shelters each year. While staying with us their basic needs of food, clothing and transportation are fully covered, allowing for more time and focus to be spent on finding housing. More importantly, they are working directly with staff to build a foundation of health and financial wellbeing necessary to maintain housing.
If you've ever been to our shelters at 14 and 20 Walworth Street near downtown Saratoga Springs, you know that those spaces are in various states of wear. Our primary concern is the state of our exterior structures, as the driveway and parking area that services both shelters and our wood handicap ramp and front porch of 14 Walworth Street need rehabilitation. These improvements will greatly enhance accessibility for participants, emergency service providers, volunteers, and the community as a whole. At the same time, it will make our property more inviting and more conducive to a productive, positive environment. This project not only improves accessibility for our clients but help us become better neighbors. This project is just the start of big plans we have to substantially renovate and improve both shelters. Your support of this phase of the project helps us secure grant funding for the proposed interior renovations slated for Spring 2020.
We still need YOUR help to launch the first phase of this project!
Will you make a donation today so we can ensure safe and accessible shelters for everyone staying and visiting our facilities!
Shown above is the state of the parking lot between 14 and 20 Walworth Street shelters. This poses a hazard for the community.
