Available help for those who are homeless or are threatened with homelessness in New Bedford.

The City of New Bedford’s Homeless Service Providers’ Network has created a “Street Sheet” to identify some important resources available to you – where to get a meal, how to find a shelter and where to call for help that you need right now in New Bedford. Our Network member, United Way of Greater New Bedford is proud to cover the cost of printing this valuable resource that is utilized by people in need.

Visit the City of New Bedford’s Department of Planning, Housing, and Community Development website to download the 2016 Street Sheet in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
