Shelter House

About Shelter House

Since 1983, Shelter House has provided safe shelter and helped people improve the quality of their lives. We began in an old home in Iowa City with a capacity of 29 sleeping spaces including beds, couches, and mats on the floor. Today, Shelter House runs a 70-bed shelter facility and forty seven units throughout our community through which we provide permanent supportive housing. We focus on programs and support services including housing, employment, and mental health recovery that help hundreds of men, women, and children each year to get back on their feet. With you by our side, we are the catalyst and voice for systemic community change through excellence in service, financial stewardship, and development of strong community partnerships.
