Emergency Shelter

The Clinton County Homeless Shelter can provide emergency shelter for up to 38 men, women and children each night. We maintain four different properties: The Matrka Family House, Men's Annex, the Darleen Myers House and The Donation Center.

The Matrka Family House (families with children and single women) is located at 36 Gallup Street in Wilmington. This property is our flagship location and first opened in 1988. It houses women, children and also has a couple of family rooms.

The Men's Annex is located at 30 Gallup Street in Wilmington which is next door to the Matrka Family House.   It opened in 2008.

The Darleen Myers House is located at 390 West Main Street in Wilmington. This location houses our administrative office.  It is staffed Monday through Friday from 7:00am until 3:00pm.

The Donation Center located at 382 Main Street is located next to the Darleen Myers House and provides a home for the shelter's food pantry, clothing, and household items that are donated from the community.  The donation center helps those living at the shelter and Clinton County families.

Those in need of emergency shelter can call the shelter at 937-382-7058.
