Where Can You Find a List of Homeless Shelters?

The National Coalition for the Homeless, the Homeless Shelter Directory and ShelterListings.org all provide lists of homeless shelters by state and type of shelter. Their websites are NatonialHomeless.org and HomelessShelterDirectory.org.

The list of homeless shelter directories at NationalHomeless.org is under the References and Directory heading. The directory includes links to other national directories, such as HomelessShelterDirectory.org. It also includes links to niche-specific directories, such as WomenShelters.org and PetsoftheHomeless.org, for homeless individuals with pets.

There are links to state and city directories for Connecticut, Washington, New Orleans, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. Website visitors can peruse profiles of homeless shelters and non-profit organizations that work with the homeless to provide food or housing. You can refine search for shelters by name or demographic, and a series of selectable criteria help to refine search results.

The homepage of HomelessShelterDirectory.org includes a map in which each state contains a link to its directory of homeless shelters arranged by city. Each shelter profile includes an address, phone number, a Web address and photos.

The homepage of ShelterListings.org contains state names with links to information about shelters and other resources for the homeless within the state, categorized by city. This may include low-income housing, day shelters and halfway houses.
