Drop-In Shelter Update

On March 31, 2024, the Bryant Center capped drop-in shelter for men at 103 and for women at 56. On April 16, 2024, Healing Transitions implemented a cap and curfew for men’s drop-in shelter (no more than 120 per night and no services after midnight). Due to recent funding from the City of Raleigh, Healing Transitions will continue providing up to 120 beds of drop-in shelter for men at least through June 30, 2024. Healing Transitions still intends to reduce emergency shelter at the men’s campus to 30 beds when construction is complete (October 2024). This reduction will occur in stages. Below is drop-in shelter data. Note the 93% increase at the Salvation Army (March 2024 as compared to April 16 – May 14, 2024).
