Class of Housing/Services: Open Arms serves homeless, single adult males in need of temporary housing

General Information:
Open Arms Shelter provides emergency shelter for men in need. There is no maximum stay. Men are generally referred by DSS. The shelter consists of 38 beds.   Open Arms serves homeless, single adult males in need of temporary housing. 75% of our guests are referred through the Westchester Department of Social Services (DSS), while the remaining 25% are walk-ins “off the streets.” Many residents struggle with substance abuse or mental illness, HIV/AIDS, or have co-occurring disorders. Some are just out of prison on parole. he shelter provides much more than a bed, shower and meal—our guests receive support and encouragement to engage in substance abuse and mental health recovery programs or employment services—as each follows their own, unique path to a better life. Open Arms’ Staff includes case managers, client care workers and managers working as a team. Each resident is personally matched with a case worker, who works with them to develop an individualized program to best meet their needs. Our objective is to place residents in transitional or permanent housing, while moving them toward independent living and as quickly as possible.
