Question I have no place to live. Where can I go?

Answer New York State has a network of emergency housing facilities for homeless individuals and families. The larger of these shelters (housing over 20,000 individuals each night) are approved and monitored by the State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) and the smaller shelters are part of the local social service department's network. If you have no place to live, contact the social services department in the county you are staying in. Many shelters not only provide emergency housing, but various programs such as employment services, substance abuse treatment, mental health and health services, assistance in finding permanent housing, parenting skills, counseling, domestic violence assistance and assistance with public assistance benefits.
