More about our directory


Homeless Shelters and Homeless Service Organizations.

The Homeless Shelter Directory provides Homeless Shelters and Homeless Service Organizations. This includes all resources necessary to help the needy.

The directory was created for people who want to find and donate food and/or supplies to their local shelter.

Volunteer Opportunities are also needed at most shelters. I have listed contact information for volunteering at these shelters.

Due to the current foreclosure rate and US recession, many shelters have waiting lists. Please call before going to the shelter.
