Entrance Requirements

Arlington Life Shelter is here for you! Whatever your circumstances, you are not alone. We know that it is hard to find yourself in a situation where you need help, but we want to let you know that you are not helpless, and there is hope.


One of the most important things you need to do is call us to find out if we have any available space at this time. Our main phone number is (817) 548-9885. We'll need to know if you are alone or if you have children with you. Sometimes we do not have any beds available, so the best thing to do is call before you come.


If there is space available, please read our Frequently Asked Questions before you come. Many of the questions you may have will be answered, but if you have further questions, feel free to contact us at any time. If there is no space available, please call back the next day. Someone may have left and a space may have opened up!


Regardless of the length of stay:

  • You must have a photo ID.
  • Background checks are required. Persons with convictions of a crime against another person within the past five years and/or a conviction of a crime against a child at any time will be denied entry to ensure shelter safety.
  • There is no fee for services.
