Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter

The Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter is a temporary residence for individuals and families who have lost safe and stable housing.

The shelter operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It serves as a temporary home to approximately 75-90 people at any given time. Typically, about one third of the residents are children. Contributions from generous donors and the incredible effort put forth by hundreds of hard-working volunteers each year are the driving force behind the shelter.
