Formerly South County Emergency Shelter, Welcome House of South County was developed in 1986 as a night to night shelter in church basements throughout Washington County. In 1987 it was incorporated and a 501-C-3 was granted. In 1989 the current building was purchased and rehabbed and Welcome House started taking its first overnight guests at the present address, 8 North Road.
Welcome House is governed by a Board of Directors who meet 11 times a year. We have a full-time Executive Director, a full-time Assistant Director, a full-time Case Manager, plus two part-time House Managers.
We have space for 17 single men and women, two of these beds are handicap accessible, as is the building.
