Description: Offers a 19 bed homeless shelter for men with a wide array of support and treatment services. A limited number of beds are available on an overnight-only basis for men who do not have DSS authorization. The shelter is a drug-free facility, and has a medical and mental health clinic on site. Residence at shelter have access to all other Sharing Community programs.

The Sharing Community currently offers permanent and transitional housing, substance abuse harm reduction counseling and HIV/AIDS counseling and testing, prevention education, case management, nutritional support services and peer support groups in addition to the soup kitchen and shelter programs with which we began. In collaboration with other neighborhood institutions, we are also able to offer on-site, health and mental health clinics.

Our main office is located at One Hudson Street in Yonkers.  You can reach us by:
 
By Train: Yonkers is on the Hudson Division line of Metro-North. Trains leave Grand Central roughly every 20 minutes or so. The trip takes about 20 minutes on an express train and 35 on a local. If you take a local, make sure you get off at the main Yonkers Station (the stop just after the Ludlow stop in Yonkers).
 
From the station, walk (or direct a cab) two blocks on Buena Vista Avenue to Hudson Street. Turn left (east) on Hudson and proceed three blocks. St. John's Church (1 Hudson Street) is on your left - between Riverdale Avenue and South Broadway. (The Sharing Community is located behind the church.)
 
By Bus: Beeline and Liberty Buses make regular stops on Riverdale Avenue, South Broadway and Hudson Street.
 
By Car from New York City: Go north on the West Side Highway. Pay bridge toll and enter the Henry Hudson Parkway - still proceeding north, through the Bronx. Keep a watch for the Westchester County border, a half-mile north of which the Henry Hudson becomes the Saw Mill River Parkway. Continue another 1/4 mile on the Saw Mill to Exit 5 - Yonkers Avenue. The exit is on your right.
 
The exit ramp for Yonkers Avenue makes a 180-degree curve and at its end you will be at a stoplight facing south: turning right onto Yonkers Avenue going west and proceed as follows below.
 
By Car from North or Car from North or East: Take the Saw Mill Parkway south to Exit 5 - Yonkers Avenue. At the end of the exit ramp, bear right onto Yonkers Avenue going west (toward the Hudson River), and proceed as follows below.
 
Once in Yonkers: Stay on Yonkers Avenue for 1 mile through 8 stoplights (ignore the fact that its name changes to Nepperhan Avenue when the two streets merge). You will begin to descend a long hill and at its crest on the other side you will pass City Hall. Continue one more block to Riverdale Avenue. Turn right onto Riverdale and proceed north 1 block to the next light at the intersection of Hudson Street. Turn right. St. John's Church is on your left: turn into the parking lot and continue left to the rear of the property to the more modern gymnasium building. The entrance is through the lobby on the right.
