How we work: 

People who seek residence at the Genesis House have to be homeless, live in an uninhabitable home. Most of those we serve are referred by other agencies within the community. There is an extensive intake process, which includes background checks, and establish a strict contract with stringent rules and regulations. Each residents must sign and abide by the contract. Those who do not comply are asked to leave. Case management are offered to all who come to the Genesis House. We are committed to helping with whatever we can for the poor and marginalized.
