Please note: Stewpot services listed as benefiting people experiencing homelessness are for individuals or families who have been sleeping in a place not meant for human habitation (e.g., living on the streets, in a car, in an abandoned building, etc.) and/or in an emergency shelter/Safe Haven. If you have been staying at a shelter, please bring a letter from the shelter with you to The Stewpot.
