PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) is FCC’s commitment to serving the homeless population in our Community. We serve as a Sunday evening, Men-Only Shelter from October through April each year. Our site provides showers, a hot dinner, overnight lodging, breakfast and a sack lunch each week to thirty guests.
