Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Employment Preparation & Procurement, Homeless & Housing, Homeless Shelters, Job Training, Mental Health, Substance Abuse Dependency, Prevention & Treatment

Mission: The mission of the Lincoln Park Community Shelter is to bring the community together to empower homeless men and women to make life changes. 

Programs:

Created in 2000 and administered by members St. Vincent de Paul Parish, the LPCS adopted the One on One Program in February 2005. The One on One Program provides direct financial assistance to people moving out of homelessness and into permanent housing by partially supporting a security deposit or rent payment. The goal of the One on One Program is to help qualified, motivated homeless applicants to obtain semi- or permanent housing. Participation in the One on One Program is open to LPCS guests and clients from other interim housing programs, and includes attendance at a series of classes aimed at building life skills such as decision-making and budgeting. After completing the classes, a participant is eligible to apply for the housing grant once they have obtained steady employment and identified affordable housing.

This is a phenomenal organization that works with guests to identify the root cause of their homelessness and provide them with the resources and tools to work toward self-sufficiency.
