What are Community Resources at Lazarus House?

At Lazarus House, Community Resources is a partnership of trust and support between our Guests and our Community Resource Specialist. It is coming alongside our Guests with patience and understanding as they navigate how to get their needs met. It is support and service without judgment.

There are four cornerstones of this Ministry that provide a continuum of care to our non-resident Guests.
