The agency provides emergency shelter and companion services for homeless individuals. It offers a residential option for more than 2,200 individuals annually. Emergency Housing Group employs over 100 trained professionals who help residents to secure permanent housing. The agency provides emergency housing and 24-hour supervision to single men and women and families. It offers a range of meal, transportation, counseling and support services. HONOR provides medical, mental health and substance abuse care services. The agency maintains its Adult and Family Shelters in Middletown, NY but services Orange County.


Excerpts from HONOR FaceBook page:

HONOR’S F.I.T.S. (Focus Information & Triage Services) is provided in case of emergency 24/7. The FITS programs include but not limited to Street outreach program and food pantry.

Our Street Outreach Program provides both direct and indirect outreach to the unsheltered and hidden homeless in our community. We endeavor to help them meet their basic needs with the ultimate purpose of getting them off the street and engaged in services.

Our Food Pantry makes food available to anyone entering our facility that is not looking for shelter, but for food only.


HONOR operates a 13 bed runaway and homeless youth shelter for co-ed youth 17 and younger in Orange County. The program, known as “A Friends House” is located in a 2-story home like facility which sits on a quarter acre on land. “A Friends House” is the only runaway and homeless youth shelter in Orange County, and while located in Middletown, we serve youth in need no matter where they are from. If you know of anyone who could use our help or services give us a call 845-343-7115 or dial 2-1-1.


HONOR is pleased to announce our exciting new initiative called “Housing First”. This project provides one-bedroom apartments (scattered site) for 21 chronically homeless individuals who have been living on the streets, in emergency shelters, abandoned buildings and other places not meant for human habitation. Support services provided include referrals to service providers, assistance with paperwork, and transportation to/from the service providers. Daily contact by a project caseworker in a way that provides each participant with the specific support and access to services s/he needs to maintain housing stability.
