The Homeless Services Bureau of the Boston Public Health Commission operates two emergency shelters: Woods-Mullen Shelter and Southampton Street Shelter. Both shelters operate 24 hours a day 365 days a year and provide guests with a bed, linens, showers, three meals, case managers, and a number of community and housing resources to move beyond shelter to stable housing. Beds are given out daily on a first-come, first-served basis.
