St. Vincent de Paul Men's and Women's Shelter

Address: 108 E. Walnut Ave.
Coeur d'Alene, ID
Phone: 208-664-3095
Eligibility: Since 1990, St. Vincent de Paul has been offering emergency shelter to the area’s homeless. It started with the opening of our shelter for men — the only one in North Idaho to serve homeless men — in a renovated house directly behind our Coeur d’Alene thrift store. Then, two years later, another house just down the street from the men’s shelter was purchased for a women and children’s shelter. Each shelter provides a clean, safe atmosphere with enough space to sleep twelve guests per night. Each guest also receives two meals per day and has the opportunity to receive information and referrals to needed services, job counseling, and life skills classes. While at the shelter guests volunteer time at the thrift store and do needed chores at the shelter. They also have up to 7 days to find employment and are required to save half of their income so they will have money available for their own residence. Our shelters are open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and guests can stay for up to 30 days. Both are also drug and alcohol free (as are all St. Vincent facilities) and guests are expected to be substance free on or off the premises. Our goal is that when a guest leaves our shelter they are moving into a stable situation.
