New Horizons operates an emergency shelter located at 199 Manchester Street.
The shelter can accommodate 63 men and 13 women in dormitory style sleeping areas. The shelter is available to homeless individuals 18-years-old and older. Shelter residents are required to sign in daily between 5:45 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Although alcohol or illegal substances may not be used on, or brought onto, New Horizons property, adults with active addictions are admitted. While not a treatment facility, we recognize that many of the chronically homeless who use our shelter are addicted to alcohol or other substances, and we work with them to seek treatment when they are ready.
Dinner is available at 3:00 pm for seniors and again at 4:30 for others including adults and families who do not reside at the shelter. Breakfast is available for shelter residents. There are also shower and laundry facilities on-site as well as case management and health related services.
