The Coalition is closed Nov. 1, 2012
Coalition for the Homeless will be closed due to conditions resulting from Hurricane Sandy until further notice. Please find below information regarding where you can seek shelter. Some shelter access points have changed due to flood conditions and are reflected below.
Please also note, the City’s Code Red policy is currently in effect. Sanctioned clients and applicant families for shelter should report to the appropriate intake facility and will be temporarily sheltered until further notice.
People relocated from evacuated shelters will not be returned to them until the facilities are cleared of water and have electricity, food and linens.
Human Resources Administration offices will be open starting Tuesday October 30th where you can seek assistance with emergency food stamps due to lost food supplies during the storm. You can also contact 311 for further information.
We hope to re-open very soon. We apologize for the inconvenience and urge you to stay safe and indoors.
