The Challenge

About WATTS

WATTS’s mission is to break the cycle of homelessness one life at a time. We empower individuals to re-enter the workforce and connect individuals to the resources needed to be as self-sufficient as possible while providing a safe temporary shelter during extreme weather.


In 2009, a faith-based group recognized a population of homeless adults who do not otherwise qualify for admission to the shelter programs in the area. Recognizing there would be people sleeping outside during the coldest weeks of winter and warm church buildings empty at night, WATTS was born. WATTS has grown to meet the needs of homeless individuals in our area. Today, we provide 20 weeks of overnight shelter during the winter, a Warming Center in the winter, a Cooling Center in the summer, and our Transition Out of Homelessness Program assists in ending a guest’s homelessness.
