Who We Are

Citizens Concerned for the Homeless is an organization comprised of Sand Castle Shelter and Grace Learning Center. Sand Castle Shelter addresses the "invisible" crisis of homeless children and families in our community. Grace Learning Center provides assistance in developing skills necessary to gain entry level and advanced level jobs.

What We Do

Our mission is to provide short-term drug and alcohol free shelter to homeless families, assist in securing permanent housing for these families, and provide opportunities to build a skill set to maintain stable housing.

Who We Help

Sand Castle offers temporary shelter to LaPorte County families. These families may be single mothers or single fathers with children, or families headed by couples. When space is available, we accept single women as well. All family members must test free of drugs and alcohol.
