If You Need Help

Guidelines for those in need of emergency shelter:

Humility of Mary Shelter, Inc. accepts new participants as space allows on a first come, first served basis. If you or someone you know needs emergency housing help, the procedures on this page will assist you. We do not make reservations, but receive new participants as beds become available.

  • Intakes for emergency shelter are completed Monday-Thursday starting at 7AM at HMSI. Alternate entry times are the decision of the Director of Services/Operations.
  • Participant’s seeking shelter should arrive at shelter at 7AM.
  • If there are more people seeking shelter than available openings, an assessment tool will be used to determine an individual’s vulnerability and HMSI will prioritize those with the highest level of need.
  • Once a participant has entered HMSI’s emergency shelter they are eligible to stay up to 90 days in a calendar year. If a person does not return to shelter for 3 nights, they will lose their place and must follow the above procedure for re-entry.

It is HMSI’s goal to provide emergency shelter to any adult experiencing homelessness. When that is not possible, because we are full, we want to communicate clearly the next possible opportunity for checking in. In addition, we want people to have the opportunity to speak with someone who can help provide appropriate referrals or connection to resources until more stable housing is identified.

Women and men’s accommodations are on separate floors. Due to restricted storage space, participants must limit belongings to two bags or suitcases. No weapons are allowed on the premises.

Parking is available for vehicles in the lot directly in front of the shelter entrance.
