We operate 24/7

Stockton Shelter for the Homeless provides emergency shelter, food, clothing and related services to homeless families and individuals. When our rooms are full, we offer sleeping mats on the floor in our family shelter, single men’s shelter and day shelter. We operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We never close, and we don’t turn away anyone seeking emergency shelter.
