"I was a resident of the South Park Inn during a difficult period in my life. Thanks to them I am who I am, and I thank them for my achievements and for being able to become the mother that I am today," said Jocelyn, former resident. South Park Inn helps individuals as they overcome challenges and successfully find housing solutions appropriate to their needs. This includes providing emergency shelter, veterans programs, respite, and supportive housing as well as meals. Food is prepared and served on site and at the Plimpton House, and street outreach provides bag lunches.
