Resource Guide

About the Online Resource Guide

This searchable database is an online version of the widely popular Coalition for the Homeless Resource Guide. In it, we provide the most comprehensive catalog of emergency services – shelter, outreach, soup kitchens, etc. – available for homeless families and individuals in New York City.

While some of the information in the Resource Guide will inevitably be incomplete or out-of-date – programs change and new programs appear at an accelerating rate – our goal is to provide the most comprehensive guide to services for homeless and low-income New Yorkers. Unlike our published guide, the online database is continuously updated. If you see any errors, please contact us at with your corrections.

NOTE: If you are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless, please click here for more information on New York City shelters and the Coalition’s Crisis Intervention Program.
