WELCOME TO THE HUNDRED NIGHTS, INC WEBSITE!!
MISSION AND VISION STATEMENT
Hundred Nights, Inc. is a community organization with three components. Our mission is to provide a cold weather shelter which offers clean beds in a safe and warm space from 7pm to 7am during the winter months to our neighbors in need. Concurrently we operate the Open Doors Resource Center which provides a welcoming space for people to gather for sustenance of body and spirit on a year-round basis and hold a Monday night free medical clinic for the uninsured.
Our vision is to work together with the larger community toward a day when no one is homeless, eventually eliminating our own need to exist. Until that day, we aim to be a source of hope and respect for the most vulnerable among us, while providing shelter and opportunities for enrichment and community building.
As we pursue this mission and vision, we are guided by principles and values. The Board and staff will do everything within our means to ensure that every guest and volunteer is treated fairly. The fostering of mutual respect and dignity among people from all walks of life and a sense of pride in the work of the organization will remain at the forefront of discussion, decision and action. Every organization requires rules and standards of operation. It is only when they are not respected that a person would be turned away or denied access to services.
