May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him. Romans 15:13

If you or someone you care about is hungry, homeless or struggling with difficult life circumstances – we can help. GIFTS Men’s Shelter provides food, shelter and life recovery services to men from Rock County, Wisconsin.

The first step to receive services is complete an intake interview. Open interviews are held Monday through Thursday from 1pm until 3pm. Please bring a photo ID.

If your work or treatment schedule does not allow you to come during those times, please contact the Resource Center 608-728-4941 to make other arrangements.

Our shelter is located at 1025 North Washington Street in Janesville, WI.

If you are in immediate danger or facing a life-threatening emergency, call 9-1-1.

Seek God’s will in all that you do and He will direct your path. Proverbs 3:6
