The Nation's First Pet-Friendly Women and Children's Homeless Shelter since 2008

Our Mission

We are a private and non-profit homeless shelter for women, children, and their pets for extended stay. We have accommodations for 28 individuals and much more room for their furry, feathered, scaled and finned family members. We do not discriminate based on race, religion, age, or species. We offer semi-private rooms and provide food, clothes, and all personal needs for our residents. We accept women and children of all ages; males 18 and under. We accept all pets, regardless of size, breed, or species. Our address is 16-18 Cedar Street, Milford Massachusetts. 

The Gan Rivkah Center is supported by Karma Café and Treasures & Trinkets Antique Shop, both located at 319 1/2 Main Street, Milford, MA.
