For many in desperate need, the Lazarus House Emergency Shelter is both the last line of defense and the first ray of hope. The facility supports families and singles as they overcome homelessness. The house has seven rooms for families and single men and women with 41 beds and seven cribs; the group shares their frustrations, stories and dreams. Individually, adults battle road blocks to success and address the roots of their homeless experience to ensure stability for themselves and their children. Often, our Emergency Shelter guests need a longer advocacy period and additional education to truly possess the skills for success.
Capernaum Place provides 20 units of transitional housing to families and individuals in their own private apartment. The tenants receive the personal attention they need to escape homelessness for good. Capernaum Place's success rate is currently more than 90%.
