On any given night of the year up to 20 mothers and children seek the support of St. Paul’s Center. By adopting a night in the Center you support families with a safe place to sleep, healthy meals, and access to supportive services to move from experiencing homelessness to a sustainable future.
Through our hard work we have impacted over 2,800 families
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.
