Due to Covid-19 and the safety of those we serve TRM will give priority shelter in the following manner. Our Men’s Shelter will give priority for single men coming from Shawnee, Wabaunsee, Jefferson, Jackson, and Osage counties.  The Hope Center, for families and single women, will consider individuals from those same five counties. 

Additionally, consideration for registering at the Hope Center will be given to those from the counties of Marshall, Nemaha, Brown, Doniphan, Pottawatomie, Atchison, Morris, Franklin, Miami, Chase, Coffee, Anderson, and Linn counties. Individuals wishing to be considered for Hope Center shelter must first call, be screened and receive approval before coming. 785-354-1744.

All other potential guests outside these areas will be considered on a case-by-case basis but must call first. This was not a decision that came easily. It has always been our desire to serve all who come to our doors seeking help, yet in this critical time our top priority is safety for our guests, staff, and volunteers.


Every day, hot meals are provided to our guests from our talented TRM chefs and volunteer team. Anyone staying with us is welcome to come to our main building for a warm meal three times a day.
