Shelter Program

The shelter can house up to 23 adults and children and operates at maximum capacity. Shelter staff collaborate with ATASK’s community-based advocates to provide a coordinated response for clients. This team provides assistance and referrals, enabling clients to rebuild their lives. Staff lead domestic violence support groups, parenting groups, house meetings, and other groups that focus on topics such as life skills. Additionally, staff meet with clients individually. We also offer English-language and computer tutoring, as well as childcare and healthcare services. Shelter residents receive food, transportation, and other essentials.  In addition, a nurse from Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program visits the shelter weekly.
