Emergency Homeless Shelter

ACTION's Emergency Homeless Shelter provides a limited number of beds and hot meals to homeless adults (ages 18 and older) on a nightly basis. Prior to leaving the Shelter in the morning, guests are also provided with bag lunches. The Shelter offers a safe, supportive environment in a clean, comfortable, recently renovated building in Gloucester. Space at the Shelter is limited and individuals are encouraged to call before visiting. A bed can not be guaranteed.

The ACTION Shelter provides a temporary solution for homeless individuals while we assist them in a quest for more permanent housing.
