The Scott County Homeless Shelter is independently operated by a five-person board of directors.
The shelter has beds for up to 25 guests. In addition to temporary housing for the homeless, shelter staff — which includes two case managers — assists guests with obtaining a GED if they do not have a high school diploma, finding a job and finding permanent housing.
The shelter is housed in the old Capital Hill School on Jeffers Road in Huntsville. The facility is leased by Scott County to the Morgan-Scott Project for $1 a year and subleased to the Homeless Shelter.
