If we cannot prevent a family or individual from losing their current housing or help them quickly secure new housing, we connect them with resources so they don't have to sleep outside or in their car.
For individuals we offer shelter, also referred to as emergency housing, and for families we refer them to the state's Department of Transitional Assistance, which determines eligibility and makes shelter placements.
Every night, we provide emergency shelter to more than 250 individuals and 130 families. Beyond our general operations, we offer sheltering and housing programs to assist military Veterans and young adults.
