About Frederick Place

Frederick Place is a 16-bed emergency, temporary shelter for families,
 women and men who
are experiencing homelessness. It is operated by 
The Northwoods Alliance for Tempoary Housing Inc. 
(NATH), which is a not-for-profit corporation.
Frederick Place is committed to ending and preventing
 homelessness. Along with NATH, 
we exist to provide safe housing and basic needs to families
 and individuals who are homeless, 
within an atmosphere of encouragement, respect,
 dignity, and hope, while nurturing
and promoting self-sufficiency and independence.

We are located at 204 W. Frederick Street, Rhinelander Wisconsin.

Admission to Frederick Place

Residents will be admitted on a "first-come - first-served basis", depending on the availability of beds.
While many applicants for admission will be referred by human service agencies, faith communities, 
or government organizations, some will seek admission on their own.

Appointments for admission interviews may be made by calling 715-369-9777.

During the "resident intake process", individuals will be subject to alcohol and drug 
testing and a criminal background check.
Individuals/families seeking admission to Frederick Place must meet the State and Federal 
definition of homelessness and must comply with the federal/state income eligibility requirements.
Individuals must be physically able to care for their personal needs and mentally stable
in order to live safely in a communal setting.
Only one admission in a twelve-month period is permitted.

Residing at Frederick Place

Once admitted, residents will be assigned a room and a bed. 
Only limited space is available for each resident to
store personal items. Pets are not allowed in the shelter. 
Each individual/family will be assigned a case manger 
who will assist them to develop a plan and goals toward living independently.
Residents are expected to meet regularly with thier case 
manager and to continue to make progress with their 
self-sufficiency plan. Generally, residents can stay up to 30 days
 in the shelter if they are 
following "House Rules" and working on their goals.
Additional 30-day stays may be granted for those residents 
who are making progress if approved by 
the Executive Director. The maximum stay for an individual is 90 days.
