Spring Street Shelter
The Spring Street Shelter provides emergency shelter and support services for homeless adults with mental illness. Accommodations include separate men's and women's dormitories with a total of 15 beds. There is 24-hour staffing, two meals per day, laundry facilities, and a pay phone for personal use. Residents may stay on the premises during the day; however, the dormitories are closed between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The purpose of the program is to help adults with mental illness move from homelessness to stable, long-term housing with the support services appropriate to their needs.
