During these past days that we’ve all been experiencing Shelter In Place Orders/Corona Virus situations, our library staff wishes to help the community by providing some resources for those people or families that are in need such as local food pantries, places for financial assistance, shelter and housing, etc.  The list is below.  If you happen to know of any other organizations or places that are willing to help people please let us know by contacting us through info@southbeloitpubliclibrary.com     Thank you!

We care about our South Beloit community and our library patrons!

The Sparrow’s Nest– 1816 Harrison Ave. Beloit, WI· Shelter for homeless men, women, and children.

Family Promise of Greater Beloit– 655 Bluff St. Beloit, WI· This is a homeless shelter for families (meaning there needs to be at least one dependent). This can include a couple with children; they do not separate families due to gender. They are more of a program than a shelter because they provide intensive case management to help our guests “graduate.” This means that they have secured stable income and found housing.
