Emergency & Assessments

Emergency & Assessment Shelter



The Emergency &Assessment Shelter is located on State Route 702, off of Highway 58 in the Stickleyville Community of Lee County. Stickleyville is located between Duffield and Jonesville. This home is surrounded by 36 beautiful rolling acres of land owned by Harvest Child Care Ministries.

The Shelter shares this property with our Stickleyville Cottage. This facility can house up to 22 children at any time. The shelter has two separate wings for boys and girls monitored by a security alarm system. Separate boys and girls units hold up to eleven children each between the ages of 5 and 18. Each separate unit contains five bedrooms, three baths, and a large day room. The day room is filled with video games, board games, satellite television, and lots of videos and DVD's to keep the children busy. A glass office allows the staff private areas to perform their necessary paperwork. A central dining area and a commercial kitchen provides three meals a day for the children at this facility. Downstairs, there is a large recreation room filled with video games, a pool table and air hockey. 24-hour awake staff provides for the children's daily needs and manage their behavior.
