What is a homeless shelter?

A homeless shelter is a building that helps homeless people by giving them a place to stay for awhile. It can include beds, bathrooms, showers, clothing, and hot meals. They also have activities for children. Some homeless people also move into “transitional housing,” which are housing facilities that also have job training and other services to help the homeless eventually get their own homes.
