966 Main Shelter

Bennington County Coalition for the Homeless offers emergency shelter services for homeless adults over the age of 18 at our 966 Main Street Shelter, known as “966 Main”.

It is a 16 bed coed facilitated that operates on a first-come first-serve basis. Once you are admitted into the 966 Main program, your bed is secured each day until you secure permanent housing. A housing case manager will be provided to help you develop a plan toward self-sufficiency.

966 Main also serves as a drop-in center for homeless individuals to gain access to case management services, clothing, food, bedding, personal care items, and bathroom/showers.
