Help others by giving
Our guests face tremendous barriers when homeless. We help them overcome these barriers! Within 30 days on average, an amazing 86% of our guests are breaking the cycle of homelessness and positively transitioning to their own housing or entering in-person behavioral health treatment! Our staff treats each person with compassion, respect, and provides the tools needed to help guests get to the root of their homelessness.
how you can help
Restoring Hope. Renewing Lives.
Since 1993, more than 8,000 children and adults experiencing homelessness in Northeast Ohio have received shelter, care, and guidance through Project Hope for the Homeless, the only emergency shelter in Lake County. In 2020, we served 280 guests including 39 children.
We are here to help!
Due to local COVID-19 cases rising dramatically, our administrative offices will be closed for the time being. We will still accept in-person donations on Wednesdays from 9 am to noon. Our staff is working remotely and checking messages.

“The two boys waved at me as I passed the ramp at Project Hope for the Homeless. I had first met them when I was volunteering on the family side of the shelter. I was immediately impressed with their mom, who takes parenting quite seriously. I was equally impressed with the friendliness and the behavior of her children. The social worker was helping her sort through papers and listings that could assist her. If I have learned anything in this last year and a half, it is that the those who are blessed to be at this place are by and large men, women and children of good character who for one reason or another have become homeless.” – Volunteer
