Housing & Shelter

Everyone deserves to have a safe place to sleep at night. We promote shelter and stability by providing quality resources and referrals, mediating between landlords and tenants, and housing women and children in a continuum of care.

Our Programs

Our Housing programs include a wide variety of services to fit your needs.


During winter, we offer Cold Weather Shelters from Nov 1-March 15, when temperatures are forecasted to be 34° or below. Check back on Nov 1 for more information.

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about our programs!
