Emergency Shelters

Some shelters are for single men and women, some are for single women with children, and some are for families. If you have a criminal record, some shelters have a policy about not sheltering people with certain convictions, such as a violent offense or sex offense. If you call a shelter and it’s full, try calling later in the day in case a bed opens. Be persistent. If it’s full one day, call the next day. You can also call 211 for information about shelter beds. They may know of available beds.

Emergency shelters and day shelters usually have case managers or intake specialists who can help you learn about housing programs in your area. Be sure to meet with them to get started with applying for supportive housing.
