General Information
Description of ServiceEmergency shelter is coordinated through HELP so there is always a tracking system for who is in shelter and for how long.

HELP resource counselors work with clients to place them into one of the emergency shelters in our area:
- Interfaith Family Shelter for families that include teenage and adult males;
- Shalom House and The YWCA of Greater Harrisburg for women and children;
- The East Shore YMCA will, when space is available, accept referrals for single men who are able to continue paying the weekly fees after an initial payment provided by HELP.

When there is no shelter space available locally, staff members will work with clients to attempt to find an alternative to shelter replacement.
