For Women Seeking Shelter:
We look forward to meeting you and assessing your unique situation. Our intake office is open Monday through Friday; 10 am to 1 pm. Women must be at least 30 years old to be considered.

As a first step in the intake process, please call 212-564-7887 to speak to a case manager on duty. The case manager will work with you to assess your needs and arrange for a face-to-face interview if we believe we can be of help and we have an available bed.

Please note that shelter inquiries must be made by phone, not by coming to the door, or by email. Email requests will not be answered.

We welcome volunteers. Please contact Nancy Perez at 212-564-7887 for more information.
