The Digital “Pocket Guide to Emergency Assistance”

The Pocket Guide and the United Way of Lee, Hendry, and Glades Counties Interactive Map below was prepared to help those who find themselves homeless or in immediate need of some sort of assistance. It does not contain all the services which may be available to assist you or guarantee services are still available. Our sincere hope is that it will connect you with someone who can be of assistance.

If you are living outside, in a car, or in an emergency shelter, we invite you to complete a “Coordinated Entry Assessment” to help you find a housing solution by connecting you to available resources.

You can speak to staff and complete an assessment 24 hours a day and 7 days a week by calling 239- 533-7996.

You will be asked several questions to determine your housing needs.  The assessment takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.

The completion of an assessment does not guarantee housing.

You should continue to seek other resources to resolve your housing crisis.
