Summit House shelters up to 7 families at a time. These families often include children of all ages and come from unstable situations where they have been residing outside, in their car, from couch to couch, or after fleeing for their safety. When families reach Summit House, they often don’t have much for themselves. O.R.C.A. can provide some of the essential basic needs to assist while families stabilize, but we know that we can’t do it alone.
