Do You Need Help?


Lazarus House helps people through our soup kitchen, food pantry, evening bagged lunches and winter soup truck. We provide food to anyone who is hungry.


Our thrift stores are a hub of activity. We sell affordable items or give vouchers for free clothing, household items to people in need.


For many in desperate need, the Lazarus House Emergency Shelter is both the last line of defense and the first ray of hope.


The Work Preparation Training program was developed with one thing in mind: to permanently move families and individuals out of poverty.

  • “We get dairy, grains, vegetables, and fruit. My daughter loves the yogurt so my husband and I save them for her.

How wonderful is that.”
