Year Round Emergency Shelter

Shelter location:
14 Walworth Street
Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

The year-round emergency shelter provides temporary shelter for up to 23 people at the Walworth Street facilities in Saratoga Springs.

Critical to a person’s success is self-determination combined with 24 hours/day staff support. Guests work with a case manager to develop a housing plan that addresses their individual needs and forms the foundation for which independent living can be sustained. (Partially funded by the Local Department of Social Services, private foundations and contributors; and nightly shelter rent if able).
