Class of Housing/Services: twelve family congregate shelter for homeless families.
Medway Family Shelter is a twelve family congregate shelter for homeless families. It is staffed 24 hours a day. Parents and children of each family share one private bedroom. They share the rest of the common spaces such as the kitchen, dining room, living room, and bathrooms with the rest of the families. Staff assists families in acquiring permanent, affordable housing, as well as medical, education, vocational, and social services and referrals. ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS Homeless Families must contact their local Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) office to be determined Emergency Assistance Eligible (EA Eligible). The DTA reviews a family's reason for becoming homeless, income, asset, and citizenship. Please refer to the below link to DTA for more information regarding eligibility. Once eligible the local DTA office will refer the family to the SMOC Intake Coordinator whom then interviews and places the family in the next available appropriate shelter opening.
