About us

Since 1992, Central Iowa Shelter & Services’ mission has been to provide free shelter and meals to homeless adults regardless of physical or emotional conditions, and to facilitate their move toward self-sufficiency. Each year, approximately 2,000 homeless women and men receive emergency shelter and supportive services to help them move beyond homelessness. Our facility is 42,000 square feet with 150 beds for emergency shelter, 19 rooms for transitional housing for Veterans and 38 Section 8 Voucher efficiency apartments. CISS also provides an on-site health clinic, food pantry, clothing closet and classroom. All clients and residents are provided breakfast, lunch and evening meals; access to shower and laundry facilities, a weekly medical clinic, and group counseling; as well as individualized case management, life skills instruction, and referrals to other community services/benefits.
