Why can’t I stay at the Triage Shelter during the day?

Our Triage Shelter is designed to provide temporary shelter for homeless individuals and families until appropriate and affordable permanent housing can be found. The Triage Shelter also includes safety and protection from exposure to the weather for individuals experiencing homelessness. For more than 30 years, research has demonstrated that stabilizing people through shelter, moving them into permanent housing, and implementing assistance programs to keep them in their housing, can not only reduce but eliminate, homelessness. Shelters are a stepping stone on the way to housing, not a destination.
