Emergency Shelter

Unaccompanied women over the age of 18 may seek shelter at The Delores Project. In particular, The Delores Project is a safe place for those members of the LGBTQ community who are without a safe place to stay at night. We are available by phone to answer your questions and we reserve any available beds by phone on Mondays at 11:30 a.m.  After 11:30 am Monday, women may inquire about availability any time daily.

Community Partner Program

The Community Partner Program offers reliable nightly shelter for women and transgender individuals who are actively engaged in case management with other agencies. Ideal candidates for the Community Partner Program should be: experiencing homelessness; meeting with a qualified case manager at least monthly, and actively working on goals towards achieving long-term stable housing.  This program is highly desirable and The Delores Project does maintain a waitlist for access.

Interested case managers must first complete the Community Case Management Agreement and The Community Partner Referral Form. Once the agreement and referral are received and approved case managers will receive a response detailing the next steps. For questions or additional information, please contact Shelter Program Manager, Carolyn Moreno:  carolyn@thedeloresproject.org  Please check back regularly for updates on the Community Partner Program.

Steps to Stability

The Steps to Stability program provides reliable nightly shelter and case management services for those women and transgender individuals experiencing homelessness who do not have access to case management services elsewhere.  Access to the program is made available after staying at The Delores Project at least once, and enrollment is only available during a shelter stay.  Once accepted into the Steps to Stability Program, these guests will work with our Transitional Advocate on individualized goals towards stability, including housing options.
