Berkeley Emergency Storm Shelter

OUR SERVICES

Men and women who endure chronic homelessness often suffer from mental illness, substance abuse, and physical challenges. Their safety is especially fragile during the winter months without a safe place to sleep. 

On nights when it rains or when temperatures drop below 40 degrees, we run our Berkeley Emergency Storm Shelter (BESS)  at Old City Hall (2134 Martin Luther King Way) from 7pm to 7am with extra beds .

To learn more about our services, volunteering, or if you need help, please call (510) 705-1325
