What if you are denied EA shelter but have no safe place to sleep?

If you are denied EA shelter and have no place to sleep you will be given a list of non-EA shelters but those have very few available beds. If you live in the City Boston, you may call the Mayor’s hotline (dial 3-1-1, available 24 hours a day, or 617-635-4500). You may also want to call your State Representative and/or State Senator for help. Find their names and numbers. Or you can contact a local legal services advocate.
