Daybreak Shelter provides temporary shelter for homeless men and women over the age of eighteen. It is one of the last “wet” shelters in the state, meaning we allow individuals under the influence of alcohol or substances to stay, though we do not allow alcohol or substances to be brought onto or used on our property. Daybreak Shelter is open from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. on a first come, first served basis, each day. Guests must arrive no later than 9 p.m.
Please feel welcome to direct individuals without shelter to Daybreak Shelter, 19 Winter Street in Lawrence, where they will find safety, a bed, breakfast and dinner, a shower, resources for employment, resources for housing, resources for healthcare, resources for mental health issues, resources for addiction issues, friendly care, and much more. There’s also life skills building groups and other appropriate topics.
If you want to donate to their care a referral to Daybreak Shelter is a very good option.
Other options include donations to Daybreak Shelter for the 50 guests helped each night.
