Shelter NOW in Meriden offers multiple forms of emergency shelter on site. Managed by New Opportunities, this location provides refuge for three categories of homeless people: single men, single women and families.
Services are directed toward those who do not have safe shelter – they are literally homeless. The program is supported by the Connecticut Department of Housing (DOH).
Different categories of residents occupy each floor in the building. There are 26 beds for single males, dormitory-style facilities for 10 single females, eight rooms for family units, and 8 transitional living (TLP) single rooms for women.
Shelter NOW is located at 43 Saint Casimir Drive, Meriden, CT.
