Our Vision for the Future
CHIRP, Inc. is dedicated to assisting homeless individuals and families in their transition to independence, self-sufficiency, and well-being.
We strive to provide: emergency shelter, transportation, job search assistance, food, clothing, and household goods. We also assist clients in the search for housing, and try to find or provide furnishings as clients move in. We understand that everyone’s situation is different, and we do everything we can to assist clients with their needs. We also understand that we can’t do everything on our own, so we work together with other community agencies to help clients in as many ways as possible.
What matters most is for clients to know that they are heard and that their community truly cares about their well-being.
Let’s face it, we should not exist. No one should go to bed hungry, or stay up days at a time because there is no safe place to rest. Unfortunately, homelessness is a reality, even in a city like Columbus, Indiana. Therefore, it is our goal to open a center to provide emergency shelter, as well as transitional housing. We don’t want to just give people a place to sleep for the night; we want to help them get back on their feet with steady footing. Our vision for our future is to open a shelter, but our vision for the futures of our clients is to see them take back their lives.
If you share that vision, perhaps we can end homelessness together.
