Housingworks womanGroundworks Shelter is a year-round 30-bed shelter for families and individuals. The Shelter offers an extended stay and provides all residents intensive case management, working collaboratively with area non-profit and public agencies to help people connect to a wide range of services including: job training and placement, medical and mental health treatment, family and substance abuse counseling, budget management, nutrition, health education, parenting and child care services, and assistance in identifying and applying for subsidized housing opportunities.  Groundworks Shelter operates at capacity throughout the year and maintains a waiting list for entry.  If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please click here.

Groundworks Seasonal Overflow Shelter – Open from November through the end of April, the Groundworks Seasonal Shelter provides a warm place to sleep and a hot meal each night for those experiencing homelessness in our community.

Groundworks Day Shelter – Groundworks provides a safe place where our neighbors experiencing homelessness can come in out of the weather and access services such as email, telephones, laundry, showers, a mailing address, coffee and snacks, the Food Shelf, and a kitchen to prepare a meal.

Groundworks Day Shelter and Seasonal Overflow Shelter are temporarily closed due to COVID-19 while people experiencing homelessness are being temporarily housed in motels as COVID-safe shelter.  When it is safe to reopen, these two programs will have a new home in the newly constructed building at 54 South Main Street in Brattleboro.
