Our Mission

HERE in Jackson County’s mission is to end homelessness throughout Jackson County by providing temporary emergency shelter, housing focused case management services, and short term assistance.

Our Vision

Our vision is to end homelessness in Jackson County and ensure that every person has access to safe and affordable housing.

HERE was established with the intention of operating the Jackson Homeless Program and expanding its programming and capacity. A strong pillar of this expansion is the establishment of a year round brick and mortar shelter. Currently, emergency shelter is offered only during winter months in a hotel setting. This costly seasonal hotel model greatly limits the scope and effectiveness of services provided to homeless individuals in Jackson County. HERE is seeking community support in its efforts to establish this year round emergency shelter so that we can adequately address this need in our community.
