Emergency Shelter for Families
Homeless families face unique challenges. Many shelters do not allow men to stay in the same facility as children. For single fathers, two parent families, or families with 18-year-old sons, they may be forced to separate. Many families will stay on the streets instead of being housed separately.
The Bullhead City Shelter has a dedicated family shelter that is separate from the main shelter. Families have private bedrooms, a private bathroom and communal kitchen, dining, and play area. Families also have a shared laundry area. Up to three families can receive temporary shelter in a home-like setting.
The family shelter provides a safe place where families can make a fresh start without worrying about where they will sleep or what they will eat. A housing case manager will help the families work toward permanent housing, reliable employment, and financial independence.
Temporary Housing for Individuals - Women's | Men's Emergency Shelter
The Bullhead City Shelter has dedicated shelter space for both men and women. This space provides temporary emergency shelter for up to 40 individual adults, with men’s and women’s areas separated.
Men and women staying at the center have access to hot meals, showers and hygiene supplies, laundry facilities, computer access and compassionate case managers who help them navigate community resources and create a plan for permanent housing.
Assistance Program for Homeless Veterans | Bullhead City, Arizona
Veterans experiencing homelessness may be reluctant to enter a homeless shelter. The Catholic Charities shelter in Bullhead City provides a dedicated space that can accommodate up to eight veterans. Veterans will find solace in the semi-private rooms that provide more privacy than the general shelter.
Catholic Charities Veterans Services has on-site case managers to help veterans navigate local, state, and federal resources. Veterans may be eligible for transitional housing, rental assistance, emergency assistance and other resources.
