UGM’s Emergency Shelter gives men needing shelter at night a safe place to sleep that’s warm, clean, and supportive. Our shelter provides up to 72 beds and is open 365 days a year. Please call UGM for details on how a guest can sign up for a bed.
A guest gets a bed for 30 days upon registration, which alleviates the stress of finding a place to sleep and allows more capacity and energy to consider taking the next step forward. Shelter guests have access to showers, laundry, and basic need items, and receive a bagged breakfast in the mornings.
Once they’re settled, guests can meet with a Case Manager to create a plan of transition together. Case Managers provide support amidst guests' transition, including advocacy, referrals, and resources that are helpful to a transition, in areas such as finances, housing, employment, and much more. When guests decide to participate in their case plan, they are able to stay in the shelter for as long as necessary, even if that exceeds 30 days.
