For nearly 29 years, the Presbyterian Night Shelter (PNS) in east Fort Worth has served the needs of Tarrant County’s homeless. The largest provider of services for the homeless, PNS is the only free area emergency shelter without length-of-stay restrictions.
Located in the shadows of downtown Fort Worth, the Shelter believes in respecting the dignity of its clients, while supplying meals, beds, and basic human care to an average of 625 homeless men and women every night and almost 4,150 annually.
The Shelter provides hope to its clients and is working to end homelessness. Through counseling and specialized programs, PNS provides resources so clients can reenter mainstream society. For example, 35 homeless people are employed by the Shelter and day-to-day operations. Case management and specialized services are also provided at each of the four facilities on the 5-acre campus.
Our vision is to end homelessness one individual at a time. In doing so, PNS provides for the needs of the homeless (food, shelter and basic human care) while respecting their dignity. The largest provider of homeless services in the area, PNS also provides counseling and resources (proper identification, permanent housing, employment, financial assistance, etc.) enabling clients to reenter mainstream society.
