a social services district shall offer and provide necessary and  avail-
able  emergency shelter and services FOR UP TO NINETY DAYS at a residen-
tial program for victims of domestic violence to a  victim  of  domestic
violence who was residing in the social services district at the time of
the alleged domestic violence whether or not such victim is eligible for
