Shelter House

Since 1983, Shelter House has provided safe shelter and helped people improve the quality of their lives as they move beyond homelessness. We began in an old home in Iowa City with a capacity of 29 sleeping spaces including beds, couches, and mats on the floor. Today, Shelter House operates a 70-bed emergency shelter in addition to four homes and an apartment building through which we provide 47 permanent supportive housing units.

The Older Worker Employment Program is a partnership between Heritage AAA and Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services to support older adults who are entering or re-entering the workforce. Consumers work 1:1 with an Employment Specialist every step of the process, from identifying fields of interest to résumé writing to securing interviews for permanent positions.

The program is for adults ages 55+ living with a disability and requires a referral from Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services.
