The Safe Space Shelter emergency shelter will remain open until further notice.


We will continue to monitor the latest news regarding the COVID-19 and respond as needed. Any additional changes made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will be communicated through e-news alerts, our website and social media platforms.


Thank you for your ongoing support of Model Cities and our work to continue strengthening our community through this challenging situation.
