For more than 50 years we’ve seen the effects of homelessness and have been there to help not only with immediate needs like shelter, food and clothing, but also with long-term solutions such as housing, employment and supportive case management.
In 2017, we renovated an adjacent building to our Client Services Center. This building now shelters men and women experiencing homelessness in separate and secure areas as well as homeless veterans. The shelters were designed to maintain our clients’ dignity and to treat them with respect while assisting them in accessing housing and needed services.
Faith Mission is the largest shelter system in central Ohio with two men’s shelters and one women’s shelter. The shelters are open 365 days a year, serving up to 237 people every night and more during cold weather. We provide shelter for approximately 1,900 people every year.
Lutheran Social Services of Central Ohio is a United Way agency, a member of Lutheran Services in America and a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
