Webster House is an emergency overnight shelter for residents of Dutchess County, open every night of the year.
Dutchess County adults (age 18+) seeking shelter must come to the screening site at 29 North Hamilton Street in the City of Poughkeepsie by 7:00 PM.
After a brief screening, those accepted are transported to Webster House.
All guests are expected to abide by a general set of rules of good behavior.
Individuals that threaten the safety of others (such as those exhibiting violent behavior or under the influence of alcohol/drugs that seriously impair their normal abilities, etc.) are not accepted at the shelter.
Shelter guests returning on a regular basis are required to participate with Hudson River Housing case managers in a personalized program focused on independent living and permanent housing.
Webster House can accommodate up to sixty individuals.
