If you are an individual in need of emergency shelter for the night, we operate two shelters for adults (no children or minors):

Father Bill’s Place, Quincy, and MainSpring House, Brockton is open to any individual adult, age 18+, who originates from our service area (proof of connection to service area required). Guests not originating from our service area may stay for up to 3 days as you make arrangements for shelter or other services in your area of origin.

Guests may bring 2 bags. Intake begins at 4:30 p.m. and ends at 6:00 p.m. daily. During intake, belongings are searched to ensure safety of all guests; medications and electronics (including cell phones) are locked and made available as needed; beds are assigned; and guests are given towels. Guests must depart the building by 7:30 a.m. each morning, unless inclement weather dictates a “stay-in” day, which will be announced by staff that morning.
Guests are served a hot dinner and a continental breakfast. Lunch is also available and open to the community from 11: 30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Families in need of shelter must be referred through the Department of Housing and Community Development.
