Community Shower for CVIC’s New Shelter, Mary’s Place

Thanks to the amazing generosity of many supporters, CVIC is opening a new shelter in June called Mary’s Place, and we need your help!

Since 2010, the need for shelter has climbed 80%.  Last year alone, 185 adults and children received shelter services. We have been so full that our use of overflow housing (not as safe and more costly) spiked 12,100% (4 nights to 488). 

After years of use by many clients, we are unable to take the majority of our old and worn out furnishings with us. We are in need of beds to sleep on, dishes to cook with, tables to eat from, and toys for children to play with.

We are excited to announce our Community Shower and invite you to be part of providing safety to our community!  Registry information is below.  Please contact Jamie at or 746-0405 with your questions.  If you choose to purchase a gift for the shower and are mailing it to our office, please add Attn: Jamie Bischoff to the mailing label.  We will keep inventory of our items and would like to give you the proper credit of your gift.
