The main objective of G.U.E.S.T. is to help diminish the hurt of homelessness. The backbone of this emergency shelter program is the numerous volunteers that give of their time and talents to operate and supervise the shelters. Another great asset to the shelter program is the religious and community organizations who open their doors to serve homeless families and individuals with the basic human needs of shelter and safety. Guests will experience a spirit of warmth and hospitality. Each guest deserves dignity and respect. Upon entering the program they will be treated as guests, welcomed into a friendly, dignified environment.
