Emergency Shelter Services

Shelter NOW in Meriden offers multiple forms of emergency shelter on site. Managed by New Opportunities, this location provides refuge for three categories of homeless people: single men, single women and women with children.

Services are directed toward those who do not have safe shelter – they are literally homeless. The program is supported by the Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS).

Different categories of residents occupy each floor in the building. There are 26 beds for single males, dormitory-style facilities for 12 single females and eight rooms for family units (mothers and children).

Shelter Now is located at 43 Saint Casimir Drive, Meriden, CT. For more information, call Shelter Now at (203) 634-1734 or email Info [at] NewOpportunitiesInc [dot] org.
