Rensselaer County Shelter

St. Paul’s Center provides emergency shelter to mothers and their children without a place to call home. Our 19-bed facility operates year round so families always have a place to go in times of need. Our dedicated staff provides support and individualized services to families as they transition to independent living.


Rapid Rehousing Program

Our rapid rehousing program, also called Enhanced Bridges, is a hand-up for those families that need a little boost to get back on track. This program provides short-term financial assistance to cover rent, security or back utility payments for families that qualify. Six months of case management support rounds out the service provided to homeless families in need.
