Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB) is a body established by Govt. of Delhi NCT to oversee setting up of shelters for homeless. The Board functions under Directives of Hon. High Court of Delhi.
Novlok Welfare Society manages three Night Shelters in collaboration with DUSIB. These shelters have facilities for sleeping like mattresses, rugs, blankets & sheets. Clean drinking water is provided and toiletry facilities are made available in an adjoining setup.
Caretakers are appointed on a shift-wise basis to oversee general functioning of the shelter in proper order. An appointed cleaner ensures proper maintenance of hygiene.
Poor and homeless individuals can avail of these shelters at no cost. This ensures that they don’t have to spend their nights struggling against harsh conditions by the roadside. This also contributes towards reduction in crime rates.
Presently, Novlok Welfare Society manages following three Night Shelters–
- Janakpuri Flyover
- Raja Garden
- Kali Mandir, Rohini
