Can you provide more details? Is this a grant to create / sustain a homeless shelter? Or to enter a homeless shelter? Location is also important.

Hey Rhoda, Grant has some good questions there. Based on  your screen name though it looks like maybe you run a shelter called Rhoda's Haven? If so, bless you! 

It can be tough to get a grant if you're not an official non-profit organization registered with the IRS. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try! Check first with your state and county to see if they might have some block grants for organizations like yours that help the community. Look at your state's web site and/or do an internet search including the name of your location. You could also see if any churches in your area might do a special offering to support your efforts. And you might also take a look at and so a search there --- you might not qualify but the results could give you more ideas about where to look.
