Ohio's Largest Shelter for Homeless Men

Ohio’s largest men’s shelter, Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry's 2100 Lakeside, has served nearly 4,000 homeless individuals served over the past year. The heart of this compassionate ministry is to provide safe lodging, meals, and faith-based life recovery programs.

For the fifth year in a row, Community West Foundation awarded a $40,000 grant towards the continued success of the Work Initiatives Program to provide men the assistance needed to break the cycle of homelessness, as well as operational support.

Over 200 men participated in the program to gain marketable skills, job training, educational initiatives, and counseling to help them on the road to permanent transformation.
