General Information:
Our Emergency Shelter is the oldest continuously operating facility of its kind on the east coast, founded in 1884. The Shelter operates from 3:30 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. 365 days a year, with a capacity of 25 beds. Guests enjoy relief from the elements, shower facilities, and a hot, nutritious dinner and breakfast. Furthermore, shelter guests, many of whom enter our doors with psychiatric disabilities, have access to a Master’s level Mental Health Counselor. They receive community referrals vital to placing them on the path towards recovery from homelessness and the dangers associated with the streets. In addition, they are eligible to enter our Transitional Living Program and many do so. Those who do not proceed to the TLP are referred to other agencies for substance abuse treatment or mental health services.
