Our Capabilities

Serving Lincoln County with love đź’•

The Connection provides shelter to over 350 men, women and children each year. Lengths of stay for our residents vary from one or two nights to the max allotted period of twenty-four months. While staying at The Connection residents are provided not only a safe place to live but an opportunity for three-meals a day, bathroom facilities, hygiene products, clothing, and a variety of other items to meet their basic needs and help begin the process of moving them out of survival mode.

We’re here when it matters most.

Through acts of hospitality and love – these stories are possible.
The Connection is a place of understanding, help, concern, guidance, and trust.

The Connection has been a blessing. They make you feel human again.

At one of the most difficult times in my life The Connection was there to help.
