Housing / Shelter / Rent Help/ Security Deposits

*If you are homeless:
1) In the Monadnock region call Southwestern Community Services, 313-7238 to get into shelter.  Be flexible (stay with family or friends), and look for shelter in other towns.  Call 211 after 4pm or in an emergency.   

2) Call the town office or city hall where you last lived and ask the Welfare Office to help you find shelter.  There is typically no shelter space statewide so the welfare office could pay for a short-term hotel stay.
