During their time at St. Paul’s Center, residents will experience a comfortable, safe, and welcoming environment. With eight rooms, plenty of common areas, and internet access, mothers are able to spend their time searching for apartments and finding employment without feeling overcrowded. Yet, our shelter maintains a sense of community through family dinners each night.
"St.Paul's helped me see that I'M POSSIBLE. St. Paul's was the bridge to my brighter future."
Our shelter spans two floors, providing a peaceful, spacious atmosphere. Designated quiet hours and curfews help to ensure restful nights in a safe setting. Our location in Rensselaer allows for easy access to public transportation. Amenities including toiletries and diapers (most of which are kindly donated) are available upon request.
