Services & Programs


Friends of the Homeless strives to assist residents in breaking the cycle of homelessness, and that to do so, individuals and families need to be equipped with the life and employment skills necessary to survive and thrive in independent living.

In an effort to provide residents with the means to acquire these skills, Friends of the Homeless has created a system by which each individual and family’s needs are assessed through one-on-one case management. Residents are made aware of their mandatory groups, as determined for each case, and are provided with the opportunity to participate in a number of additional programs designed to provide education and personal enrichment.

Every program offered by Friends of the Homeless is free of charge, and while there are many that are listed, some may not be. Please feel free to contact the shelter at 330-602-6100 to learn more about what programs are currently being offered to our residents or how you can get involved with our programming.
