How you help We believe homelessness is an emergency and that shelter is a basic necessity for human beings. We believe that only when this basic necessity is provided, do human beings have the ability to recover from homelessness. Our shelter relies upon the generosity of many to assist with providing food, paper products, clothing, cleaning items and personal hygiene items.
About us ESNKY opened its doors for the first time in the winter of 2008 as the region’s only cold weather shelter for adults. In the summer of 2010, we began providing shelter during the warmer months for men who are working towards achieving housing, income and improvement of health. We were started by a group of concerned citizens and business owners who wanted to ensure that our most vulnerable population had a place to go to during our coldest weather.
