Spruce Bough House Emergency Shelter

Project Date: 2009
Project Lead: Beth Corven
Client: Ecumenical Mission for Shelter

Goldstream Group worked with the Ecumenical Mission for Shelter to create a business plan that outlined the opening and operating of an emergency shelter for chronically homeless public inebriates with the goal of becoming fully staffed and functional within four years. The plan prescribed intensive and increasing levels of fundraising, marketing and community engagement with the board of directors taking an active role in the emergency shelter’s development and implementation.
