Founded in 2004, Winter Nights Family Shelter is a seasonal program of the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County, partnering with over 40 faith communities to provide shelter, meals, showers and services to homeless families with children.
Their mission is to keep homeless families together at a difficult time in a safe, warm, supportive environment, and to provide services to assist them toward self-sufficiency and into stable housing. Winter Nights strives to meet them where they are, understand their situation, set goals and help them chart a path forward.
Winter Nights is one of only 3 homeless shelters in Contra Costa County for mothers, fathers and their children, newborn through teens, and the only shelter to serve an entire family unit. (more)
