Welcome Life Saving & Life Changing
634 Scott St. Covington, KY
The Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky provides shelter to adults who are homeless. We provide the basic life necessities (shelter, safety, food, clothing, showers and laundry) so that our guests will be able to move forward in life. Along with the basics we provide hospitality and compassion by welcoming all regardless of their mental, physical or spiritual condition. We are Northern Kentucky's only handicap accessible shelter and the only shelter which will take in people who are referred by the police or the emergency room in the middle of the night.
