Need something else?

If you are experiencing unsheltered homelessness and living on the streets or subway, you can get help at drop-in centers. These centers are designed to make getting services easier and to help remove barriers that may be keeping you from taking the first step toward transitional and permanent housing. 

At drop-in centers, you can access specialized services that meet your immediate needs such as:

  • Hot meals and clothing
  • Showers and laundry facilities
  • Counseling, case management services, and connections to health care, including medical care and mental health care
  • Help finding a job or applying for benefits

On-site staff can also work closely with you to help you transition off the streets if you choose to do so.

You can drop in at any time. All centers are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays. You have the right to access services regardless of immigration status.
