The OHRA Shelter

If you are unhoused, you can apply to enter the OHRA Shelter. To start the process, make an appointment with a resource navigator. Admission to the Shelter is based on vulnerability, meaning those most in need receive priority. The Shelter is low barrier, which means completion of an addiction recovery program or background check are not required for admittance. Because it is low barrier, residents must be 18+. If you have people under 18 in your household and need shelter, please make an appointment with us, so we can help review other available shelter options.

The Shelter is open 365 days a year. Each guest has their own private room and bathroom, and some meals are provided. Guests can stay at The OHRA Shelter for a maximum of six months. While staying at the OHRA Shelter you will work closely with a resource navigator to help you in making your housing plan.

The OHRA Shower Trailer

For a hot shower, visit us at The OHRA Shower Trailer, currently located at The OHRA Center in Ashland at 2350 Ashland St. on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  It operates on a first-come, first-served basis. The showers are cleaned professionally between each guest’s use to ensure safety.  Resource navigators are present and can talk to you about any other needs, including laundry services. Currently, guests having a shower can do one small load of laundry onsite.
