Seasonal shelter

The YEAH! shelter serves adults who are between the ages of 18 and 24 (until 25th birthday). The shelter is open year round. Please call to check for shelter availability. We do check IDs.
The doors open at 8:00 pm and you'll be asked to sign in. If it's your first visit you'll be given an intake interview which will take about 30 minutes. In the morning, everyone needs to be out of the shelter by 8:00 am.

The shelter capacity is 30 beds. Well-behaved pets are welcome.

YEAH! is located in the Lutheran Church of the Cross at 1744 University Ave (between Grant and McGee) in Berkeley. The office phone number is (510) 704-9867.
