The Dwelling Place is a private temporary women’s shelter located in Midtown Manhattan. The 15-bed residence provides a safe haven and support services to help women transition from life on the streets to healthy, independent living.

Founded in 1977 by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, The Dwelling Place fosters an atmosphere of love and respect for our residents, regardless of their race, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation.

Our ultimate goal is to find appropriate, affordable housing for each of our residents. 

Some solutions to the homeless crisis actually work….

The Dwelling Place is one of those solutions.
