Youth Emergency Shelter

  • Although youth-specific shelters are not the answer to addressing youth homelessness, they are an essential access point where young people can obtain the support they need to stabilize their housing situation and attain basic needs.
  • The 14-bed youth emergency shelter located at 18 Norwich Street East, is often the first stop for youth who become homeless in our community, 7 days-a-week, 24 hours-a-day.
  • This program takes an innovative approach, tailored to the individual youth’s needs and meets the youth where they are at.
  • The Shelter provides emergency housing, daily meals, basic needs, healthcare, transportation needs,  supportive guidance, and community referrals to the youth residents staying at the shelter.
