Shelters for Homeless People and Victims of Family Violence

There are homeless shelters in many towns and cities throughout the state.  Most provide temporary and emergency shelter only.  In some cases, however, two to four weeks of shelter are offered, particularly to family violence victims or for detoxification purposes.
