Project Hope for the Homeless is not just a place to eat and sleep but is also an organization that provides a goal-oriented program staffed by people who truly care about our guests’ well being.
The adult shelter is open daily from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. to serve men and women guests. In 2019, we provided 359 adults with emergency shelter, a hot dinner, light breakfast, packed lunch, showers, linens, basic necessities, clothing and laundry vouchers, educational and recovery workshops from 30 partners, optional spiritual support, and weekly one-on-one meetings with a trained, professional staff member who helps guests set and achieve goals or provides them with referrals for treatment that is more comprehensive to help them achieve their most abundant life.
Guests are able to arrive at 7 p.m. each evening with a reservation. Reservations can be secured by calling 211 from any land line in Lake County or 440.639.4420 from a cell phone.
Guests depart at 6:30 a.m. and are transported to the Salvation Army at 69 Pearl St., Painesville Monday through Friday. During the weekends and holidays, guests are transported to the North St. Clair street bus stop.
