Homeless Services – Safe Haven

The Safe Haven Shelter for Women is a transitional shelter open 24 hours/day for homeless women with severe and persistent mental illness living on the streets in Back Bay, Boston Common, and Downtown Crossing. The shelter provides daytime drop-in services and overnight accommodations for six adult women. The program also offers nursing assessment, counseling, case management, housing and entitlement linkage, meals, and laundry. Our goal is to assist residents in finding permanent supportive housing.
