The following is a list of service providers that may be able to help you. Abby’s House is providing this information to you as a consideration. We cannot guarantee availability of any services. Unfortunately, services and shelter are overwhelmed by the volume of those in need. If you have a case manager, we encourage you to work with them.
While you are seeking shelter, you should do these tasks to move you forward toward housing:
Single women should submit a Single Room Occupancy (SRO) application to WCHR at 11 Pleasant Street in Worcester and SMOC at 237 Chandler Street in Worcester.
Women with children should complete an application for Emergency Assistance (Family Shelter) at the DTA office. If you do not qualify, you should have a denial letter to be considered for the Abby’s House shelter. Women with children should also call shelters listed at http://mahomeless.org/statewide-family-shelter-community-rooms if they do not qualify through DHCD.
For pregnant women with no other children, contact the Visitation House on 119 Endicott Street in Worcester at 508-798-8002
If you are a single woman in immediate need of shelter, you can access the shelter at the Greater Worcester Housing Authority at 25 Queen Street in Worcester. Single women can also contact Catholic Charities on 52 Mason Street in Worcester at 508-753-3588 to inquire about their shelter availability.
