I-HELP

Mission

Outreach Unlimited is an interfaith charitable collaboration whose mission is to help those with inadequate housing or who are otherwise materially disadvantaged work toward becoming self-sufficient through a variety of services offered in a supportive and caring environment.

The Big Idea

For 29 years, there was a model that worked for Outreach Unlimited’s Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program to help find people in need a safe place to spend the night: partnering with houses of worship for lodging. Then Covid-19 changed everything and I-HELP went from running an overnight shelter to a 24-hour service for clients. Now that houses of worship are open again, I-HELP has returned to running a nightly shelter, continuing to fill a need. Through the I-HELP program, Outreach Unlimited would like to provide emergency overnight food and shelter for individuals in Monterey County. I-HELP is often the first stop for many of the homeless population, as many programs have long waiting lists.

I-Help provided what I did not have, in order to make good choices, and that is... shelter, food, personal care, sage advice, and a calm friendly environment. It has been my healing place, and for that I will be, forever grateful.
