Allentown Rescue Mission’s Emergency Shelter
Description: Not Just a Bed and a Meal... A Chance for a New Beginning.
Our Gateway Center (emergency shelter) is the most basic of our programs and is often the entry-point into our long-term programs. Emergency Shelter receives clients - literally - off the street, who have exhausted all support and typically have multiple and long-term problems.
DUE TO THE CURRENT PANDEMIC COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS, THE EMERGENCY SHELTER IS OPEN 24/7. TO RECEIVE SERVICES FROM THE ALLENTOWN RESCUE MISSION, CONTACT THE EMERGENCY SHELTER HOTLINE BY DIALING 211 FROM ANY PHONE.
WHEN YOU HAVE RECEIVED APPROVAL OF YOUR REFERRAL, COME TO THE ALLENTOWN RESCUE MISSION/EMERGENCY SHELTER TO RECEIVE OUR SERVICES. YOU MUST PROVIDE SHELTER STAFF WITH VALID IDENTIFICATION.
The men are encouraged to join a long-term recovery program to resolve the root causes of their homelessness so they can end it permanently. They can join one of our long-term programs or be referred to another agency if needed.
Free services include nutritious meals, personal care items, beds, clothing, shower facilities, and chapel services.
