Area Shelters

If your home is not heated, go to the home of a friend or family member, or go to a local shelter. 

Shelter House
Shelter House (429 Southgate Avenue, Iowa City) is Johnson County’s 70-bed overnight emergency shelter open to adults, children, and families experiencing homelessness. If you are seeking emergency shelter, call 319.351.0326 or come to 429 Southgate in person to access the Coordinated Entry system. Staff will assess your options and let you know what is available.

Winter Emergency Shelter
The Winter Emergency Shelter (340 Southgate Avenue, Iowa City,) is open daily from 5:00 pm-7:00 am in December through March. It provides minimal overnight accommodations for individuals experiencing homelessness during the coldest months of the year. This satellite facility is intended for individuals for whom homelessness has become a chronic condition. With this expanded winter shelter capacity, individuals who would have otherwise been incarcerated or sleeping in encampments, parking ramps, and hallways of apartment buildings are instead ensured a safe, warm place to sleep.
