Emergency Shelters

A hallmark of The INN’s work is creating homelike settings in all its facilities

The INN’s emergency shelters provide housing and supportive services for guests experiencing the trauma of homelessness. The INN has three emergency shelters in Nassau County—two family shelters and one shelter for single men. The INN shelters are open all year long and staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Each shelter has a social worker to assist guests with crisis intervention and prevention, goal identification and achievement, and overcoming barriers that led to homelessness. The social worker also assists the guests in identifying and developing support systems and services to prevent the future of homelessness. Support staff helps guests to adjust to communal living; ensure a safe, stable, dignified environment; and provide information and referrals.

Additional services provided to the shelters include educational workshops for the guests on activities of daily living, parenting, employment, nutrition, etc.

The INN also has a housing specialist to assists families in locating and securing appropriate and affordable housing.
