“It costs you a lot of money to be homeless. It costs you your self-pride, dignity and time.”
Cornell Project Interviews, 2011
Since 1984, the NOAH Shelter has served the needs of individuals with a housing crisis. Located at 77 Winter Street in Hyannis, the NOAH Shelter is the only emergency-access shelter for men and women who become homeless on Cape Cod.
The 60-bed shelter serves an average of 500 people each year. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, the NOAH Shelter served 42,340 meals in 2010.
In addition to providing a safe place to sleep, the NOAH Shelter provides job-search and housing-search assistance, case management, legal clinics, and substance-abuse and mental-health counseling.
Adult individuals may go directly to NOAH. The shelter is open from 4:30 p.m. until 8:00 a.m. and is located at 77 Winter St., Hyannis, MA 02601-5553. Telephone: 508-778-5255.
