If you are homeless or know someone experiencing homelessness, MACH is here to connect you with the resources that can best meet your needs.

The first call you should make is 2-1-1. All of MACH’s available shelters and services can be reached by dialing 2-1-1, a free, community resource call center for access to available health and human services, including shelters and housing programs for the homeless.

The shelters listed below participate in MACH’s programs. By clicking on the shelter name, you will be taken to that shelter's website for more information. Please note that every shelter is operated independently, and each has its own policies for admission. You may also reach the MACH Street Outreach Worker and the MACH Housing Assistance Program by dialing 2-1-1.
