With a sad heart, Chapel House homeless shelter closed it's doors at 8 pm this evening due to facilities issues beyond our immediate repair. With the help of Cayuga County DSS we were able to relocate our 16 residents, including 5 military veterans, to a hotel for the night. Chapel House is in the process of acquiring quotes for repairs, which are estimated at $35,000, and will take a week to complete.
At this time we are asking for help. Our first thoughts are of our residents, many of whom will not have housing beginning tomorrow morning. We are looking for efficiency or 1 bedroom apartments for people with income, some working some disabled. We are looking for 2 or more bedroom apartments for people that are receiving DSS assistance. We are also seeking donations to help cover the cost of repairs so that we may get the shelter up and running as soon as possible.
Please contact our Transitional Apartment Program at (315)255-1144 if there is anything you can do to help at this time. Any monetary donations can be mailed to Chapel House, PO Box 734, Auburn, NY 13021. Any direct calls from homeless persons seeking shelter may also call that number and we will direct you to services that may be able to help while the shelter is closed.
