About this Shelter

The Bristol Homeless Shelter was founded in 1984 as the Bristol Emergency Shelter and Housing Coalition. It is a 25 bed emergency shelter for men, women and children which provides food, shelter, case-management and referral services.

The goal of the Bristol Homeless Shelter is to provide temporary emergency shelter to persons experiencing homelessness and to provide them with a safe, stable base from which to get and keep a job, enable children to return to school and to provide relief from the emotional and moral violence that often accompanies homelessness.


Mission Statement:
"The purpose of the Corporation is to promote effective community response to the housing and emergency shelter needs of low and middle-income groups in the city of Bristol"
