Hildebrand is a referral only shelter organization, which means families are referred to us through the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), the state agency that manages the Emergency Assistance shelter program. In order to receive emergency assistance from DHCD, you must qualify to be eligible. Please see the Federal Poverty Guidelines and DHCD's Housing Stabilzation Notice to see if you qualify. 
 If you or someone you know is currently experiencing homelessness, visit your local DTA office. To find the closest location, visit https://eohhs.ehs.state.ma.us/dtaoffices/default.aspx
