Staying at Interfaith Community Shelter

Serving the Homeless with Compassion and Respect

Interfaith Community Shelter, a seasonal shelter, is the only minimal barrier shelter in Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico that ensures guests have a safe and warm overnight shelter, dinner and breakfast. We welcome men, women, and children who need a place to sleep at night during the cold weather months, women and children during summer months. For a list of services and programs offered at ICS, visit Programs and Services.

“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
