Homeless? Need Help?

Project Hope 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.

Our program has three phases and a maximum stay of 90 days. Guests are able to arrive at 7:00 p.m. each evening with a reservation. Reservations can be secured by calling 211 from any land line in Lake County or 800-654-5465 from a cell phone. Guests depart at 6:30 a.m. and are transported to the Salvation Army at 69 Pearl St., Painesville.

Take a Tour of Our Shelter and see what a Typical Evening in the Shelter is like.
