Emergency Vs. Second Stage Shelters

Every individual has different needs when it comes to safe housing and shelter. Take a look if you are not sure what type of help you are in need of. 

Whats the Difference?

Emergency Shelter 

An emergency shelter provides temporary, short-term housing for homeless individuals and families. Services can vary depending on the agency that is offering the emergency shelter. 

Secondary Stage Shelters or Transitional  Shelters

A secondary-stage or transitional housing is the step between emergency shelter and permanent residence. Facilities offering secondary-stage and transitional housing may also provide further services and support to help women & their families move into permanent housing and gain skills for when they join the community.
