About the Program

The Bakhita Women’s Shelter is a low-barrier shelter for women over the age of 18 with a 20-bed capacity (25 during hypothermia season). Spaces are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

The shelter opens at 7 p.m. and closes at 7 a.m. It also serves as a hypothermia shelter when temperatures drop to dangerous lows between November and March.

The shelter provides each client with a cot or a bed to sleep in each night in addition to blankets and sheets. An evening meal is also available. Case management and social services are available upon request and include referrals to obtain food stamps, medical assistance, photo identification and more. Referrals are also available for clients dealing with substance abuse problems.
