If I have special medical needs do I go to a regular public shelter?

Persons with impairments, who are self-sufficient and capable of performing activities of daily living without assistance would go to a general public shelter. Those with special needs that would require assistance with medical care would be sheltered in a Special Needs Shelter. A care-giver must stay with you at the shelter.
