Winter shelter plan 2017/2018


From October 15 through March 15, the Mayor's Office of Human Services (MOHS) will provide emergency shelter to anyone experiencing homelessness on nights when the temperature, which includes wind chill, drops to 32 degrees and below. No one will be turned away! 

This year there are two hubs for pick-up...

Adult-only households

Families with children under 18

Weinberg Housing and Resource Center

620 Fallsway

Baltimore, MD 21202


Sarah’s Hope

1114 N. Mount Street

Baltimore, MD 21217


Daily notifications about the winter shelter status will go out by 3 p.m., but are typically sent out much earlier in the day. Individuals and families seeking shelter should arrive to the appropriate hub by 6 p.m. to allow time for transportation to the shelter and dinner service. Transportation to the overflow shelters will be available until 11 p.m. 

Accommodations will be provided from 6 p.m. until 11 a.m. the next day. In addition to transportation to and from the shelter, each person will be provided with dinner, breakfast and access to shower and laundry services. 

Visit the MOHS website or call 311, 211 or Baltimore Crisis Response (410-433-5175) for the full winter shelter plan. Sign up to receive email notifications when a Code Blue is declared on the Baltimore City Health Department website
