The number of women and children requiring emergency shelter, not just in Fresno but in the greater Fresno County area, continues to increase. Families who have lost their home due to fire, loss of job, economic conditions, abuse or other life crises need a safe haven where they can find the resources and assistance they need to get on with their life.
Previously known as the Emergency Family Shelter, Short-Term Care is the emergency component of Rescue the Children. Short-Term Care offers up to 30 days temporary shelter for women with children, including food, clothing, personal care items, referrals to other agencies that can assist them, and most importantly the love and hope through the teachings of Jesus Christ. A case manager works with the family to develop a strategy to promote a solid foundation for transition and self-sufficiency. Short-Term Care is also the entry point into the Transforming Life Community.
