Staying at Interfaith Community Shelter

Serving the Homeless with Compassion and Respect

Interfaith Community Shelter is the only minimal barrier shelter in Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico. Our staff and volunteers ensure that our guests have a safe and warm overnight shelter with dinner in the evening and a breakfast before leaving in the morning. We welcome men, women, and children who need a place to sleep at night during the cold weather months. Winter season begins October 15, 2017. During the summer, Women’s Summer Safe Haven welcomes women and children at ICS. Our guests have a safe and welcoming shelter with dinner in the evening and a breakfast in the morning.

“My life fell apart and if I didn’t have the support from Pete’s Place, I would still be homeless. A big thank you for I’m now living on my own and enrolled in college.” Nicole, a former guest

Times and instructions for staying at both shelters are explained below. For other questions, call 505-795-7494 or email interfaithsheltersf@gmail.com. ICS has a broad program of services for those experiencing homelessness or any low- or no-income individual. With our partner providers, we want to help you receive the support you need.
