Hospitality House is our family shelter with a maximum capacity of 22. We create a supportive community environment to allow people to feel safe and surrounded by positive supports while they are working their way back to independence and hope.
We also utilize campgrounds and hotel rooms from time to time in life threatening scenarios of abuse or weather related.
Most people are surprised that we can only shelter about 5% of our active case load at the Hospitality House. But as you probably know, shelter is just a part of the Knox County Homeless Coalition/Hospitality House story — we are a catalyst, the springboard people need to begin to break the cycle of homelessness.
