Emergency Housing and Shelters for the Homeless


    What are Emergency Housing and Shelters for the Homeless?

    Emergency housing and shelters for the homeless are facilities that provide temporary shelter and services for homeless people. The Emergency Solutions Grants Program funds the following types of facilities.

    • 24-Hour Emergency Shelter A facility which provides temporary shelter and services for homeless people in general or for specific subpopulations of the homeless 24 hours per day.
    • Night Only Emergency Shelter A facility which provides temporary shelter and services for homeless people in general or for specific subpopulations of the homeless for evening hours only.
    • Day Only Emergency Shelter A facility which provides temporary shelter and essential services for homeless people in general or for specific subpopulations of the homeless only during day hours.
    • Transitional Living Facility - A facility that provides shelter and services for homeless individuals and families for six months to two years in a secure and supportive environment designed to help residents achieve self-sufficiency.
    • Domestic Violence Center A facility that provides temporary shelter and services to homeless victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault.
    • Safe Haven A facility that provides shelter and services to hard-to-reach homeless people with severe mental illness who are on the streets and have been unable or unwilling to participate in supportive services.

    Shelters are available across the state for the homeless. Each shelter provides a variety of services that may include job training, transportation assistance, case management, and information and referral to other resources. Shelters may also assist individuals and families with obtaining permanent housing.
