Welcome to Grassroots. We are a 24-hour resource to individuals and families in need.  These are men, women and children who find themselves without a place to sleep. These are co-workers, schoolmates, friends and even family who may be contemplating suicide. These are members of the community who are experiencing a crisis and are seeking help, crisis intervention counseling, and sometimes just a roof.
