Who can get emergency housing?
Each facility sets its own rules about who is eligible to stay and for how long and what services are offered. Contact a facility in your area to see what their rules are.
Some emergency housing facilities are open to all people and others are restricted to men, women, youth or other groups with specific needs, such as victims of abuse, newcomers, or refugee claimants who are awaiting hearings or status.
Contact a facility in your area to see what their rules are.
To find a facility, go to Services Near Me and search for "housing assistance" in your area.
