Staying at Interfaith Community Shelter

The Interfaith Community Shelter at Pete’s Place is Santa Fe and northern New Mexico’s largest minimal barrier or “come-as-you-are” shelter and ensures guests have safe overnight shelter, dinner and breakfast. Year-round, we welcome men, women, and children who need a place to sleep at night. 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
