Adult and Family Shelters
SCO operates homeless shelters throughout Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx that provide individuals and families a safe place to stay. Many of our shelters also offer a variety of on-site services including job readiness, drop-in child care, medical, mental health, and rehabilitation to help residents find permanent housing and prepare for independent living. We also link residents to appropriate neighborhood services that help in their efforts to secure and maintain permanent housing.
