Are you experiencing homelessness? Don’t have anywhere to go? No place to stay? There is ONE phone number to call for help anywhere in Bristol County—The CALL [Coordinated Access to Local Links]. You can no longer call individual agencies to try and get in their shelter programs. As of December 1st, 2015, everyone and every agency in New Bedford [and all of Bristol county] is using ONE phone number to connect folks to the shelter they need. If you’re homeless and need help, CALL right now: 1-800-HOMELESS (1-800-466-3537) You must call this number from a local area code; that means it will only work if you call from a phone with a 508 or 774 area code. If you need shelter, there’s only one CALL you need to make! THE CALL is a program of Catholic Social Services based on federal standards and expectations for shelter systems. It is operated on behalf of all shelter programs in New Bedford, Fall River and Greater Attleboro-Taunton
