About Us

The Lincoln Park Community Shelter (LPCS) is a comprehensive social service agency serving adult men and women who are experiencing homelessness. A highly individualized, client- driven approach is a hallmark of the organization that serves between 300 and 400 individuals each year. All of the LPCS endeavors are guided by the values of accountability, self- determination and community engagement. The five programs of the LPCS work to address the challenges of homelessness at every point in the housing continuum.

In 2015 LPCS celebrated its 30th anniversary of service to the homeless community with a commitment that is stronger than ever with regard to moving individuals to permanent housing. On average, nearly 70% of the Guests have moved into permanent housing over the last five years with a consistent level of 80% of them remaining housed after six months.
