The mission of Shelter, Inc. is to help and protect children who are abused, neglected, dependent, or in need of supervision. We do this by providing 24-hour emergency and long-term care, and creating community awareness and education to prevent such problems. *We have group homes for boys and girls as well as a Transitional Living Program for older boys who are aging out of the Foster Care system. *We have a Foster Care program that includes emergency, traditional, home-of-relative and adoption services. *We also have a Healthy Families prevention program that works with at-risk families and their children.
