Shelter Client Services

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.

With support from our community, the mission of Stockton Shelter for the Homeless is to compassionately address the needs of homeless individuals and families by providing safe shelter, basic necessities, and a structured opportunity to regain self-sufficiency. Our primary focus is on emergency shelter and basic necessities. We could not accomplish our total mission without the help and support of everyone in our community.

We are continuously looking for new ways to improve or expand client services. If you have an idea about how Stockton Shelter can better serve our clients and the community, please contact us at (209) 465-3612.
