Shelter

The Homeless Shelter opened its doors February 26th, 2002 with sleeping rooms for twenty individuals and is located at 805 Spencer Street, Logansport, IN

To contact our shelter, please call 574-739-0107.

The Emmaus Mission staff provide residents with shelter, food, and clothing.

A six month program assists homeless individuals and families in finding employment, continuing education, working towards their G.E.D., obtaining permanent housing, improving life skills and solving individual crises.

All potential clients must pass a criminal background check before entering our facility to ensure the safety and security of our current residents.

 

While at our shelter each of our residents have their own area within shared, dormitory style rooms.

We have seven such rooms, six of which are located on our second floor and one located at ground level to allow us to house those clients who have limitations on their mobility and are unable to climb stairs.

We provide shelter for men, women and children and are one of the few shelters in our region that are able to house families in such a way.

 

Residents at the shelter are provided breakfast, lunch and dinner each day in our kitchen area.

Meals are usually prepared by the residents themselves although we are also blessed with volunteers who devote their time and culinary skills to our cause.

Much of the produce in our kitchen is donated by benevolent individuals in the local community although we do ask residents if they are able to help suppliment our perishable products.

 

To allow our residents a place to study we created a classroom that provides a quiet place to concentrate on schoolwork.

We offer weekly life skills classes and hope to continue to expand our educational ministry to encompass a wide variety of areas of study.

We believe that education is a crucial stepping stone that leads towards better paying employment and an increased feeling of self confidence.

For anyone wishing to stay at our homeless shelter, your privacy is of the utmost importance. Please consult this document from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority for more information on the statewide policies in place when it comes to your personal information.
