Mary Eliza Mahoney House Family Shelter

Emergency Shelter

The Dimock Center’s Emergency Shelter program was created to help individuals have access to resources that will help them put their lives back together. Simply put, if there is a need to be met, we will support it.  The goal is to move our homeless families into a permanent housing unit.

Our center, The Mary Eliza Mahoney House Emergency Family Shelter (MEMH), is a closed referral program serving Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) homeless families. The program is completely funded by DHCD, and has the distinction of being one of the few shelters in Massachusetts that accepts boys up to age 18 and male head-of-households.

Our Services

The program works to reduce the barriers that exist for victims of domestic violence, families in crisis, pregnant young mothers, infants and toddlers, mothers, fathers and intact families having difficulties locating safe, affordable, secure housing.  Residents in our shelters may stay up to 120 days.  While the search for permanent housing is our main focus, Mary Eliza Mahoney House’s staff work to assist all families in navigating service-based programs both on and off campus.

This housing program provides food, shelter for 26 families, health care, youth services, substance abuse and mental health services, along with referral services for education, training and housing, through pro-active case management for residents to regain their self-sufficiency.
