Bethany Family Services put on a holiday party for several families trying to get back on their feet.
More than 45 people enjoyed a warm meal, music and visits from Santa.
Parents like Takiesha Keys, who is a mother of three, says she and her husband are thankful their family can enjoy the holidays.
"It means a lot because without this my kids really wouldn't have a Christmas, so I think its a blessing. I really do."
Bethany Family Services provides shelter for families for up to three months at a time. It's a chance for the parents to find a job and get their lives back together.
