From November through April, the Hampshire County Interfaith Shelter Program provides 20 additional beds to offer emergency overnight housing for adults. The shelter is open from 6pm to 7am, with beds available on a first come, first serve basis; once admitted, guests may stay at the shelter for up to 30 days.
You must be sober to be admitted, and no drugs, alcohol, or drug paraphernalia are allowed on the premises. We provide a hot dinner, breakfast, warm showers, laundry facilities, and toiletries and clothing when needed. During the daytime, you may use the services offered at the Resource Center.
Members of St. John’s Episcopal Church cook and serve the evening meal on a rotating schedule with other local churches during those months that this shelter is open.
The Interfaith Shelter is operated in partnership with Hampshire County Friends of the Homeless, and Servicenet.
