1/15/2010 – Shelter Spotlight

January 15, 2010


Good Afternoon, I Must First Apologize For The Posts Recently Being Submitted During The Late Afternoon Hours. My Schedule Has Been Crazy But Not To Worry The Requests And Reception Have Been Outstanding. That Being Said Let’s Head South Today And Take A Look At St. Matthew’s House. As Many Of You Know We Feature Groups And Shelter’s That Provide Outstanding Care To The Homeless & Hungry, St. Matthew’s House Goes Above And Beyond That Standard Of Care.

ST. MATTHEW’S HOUSE

2001 AIRPORT ROAD SOUTH NAPLES, FL 34112

“Since 1988, St. Matthew’s House (SMH) has provided housing, spiritual support and structured recovery programs for the homeless in our main facilities in Naples, FL.  St. Matthew’s House can house 174 men, women and women with children in our combined facilities in Naples and Immokalee. The life expectancy for a chronically homeless person is 44 years of age for men and 40 years for women.  It is the only segment of the population where women are not expected to live as long as men. The chronically homeless often have one or more serious and disabling health conditions, including mental health and/or substance abuse disorders. In 2007, 15 people who were current St. Matthew’s House residents or past residents passed away, and those ranged in age from 22 to 54”. – From Their Website – http://www.stmatthewshouse.org
