About Catholic Charities of Des Moines Emergency Family Shelter

Catholic Charities’ Emergency Family Shelter is devoted to keeping families facing homelessness together during a very difficult time. Our experienced staff understands that homelessness is not a simple issue. While each family is expected to follow the same rules and expectations at the shelter, they are all provided individualized case management. The goal is to help each family leave the shelter with stable housing, financial security and empowerment to live a successful, sustainable life.
