People who have come upon hard times can often seek assistance and temporary residence from an emergency shelter. Shelters can be charitable institutions that are staffed with volunteer workers who are dedicated to providing relief and comfort to people and animals in distress. They provide beds, showers, food and often counseling and medical assistance. A shelter can also be a private structure for an individual or family in a time of crisis. The following list of terms might help you to understand the various types of shelters available to a community:
