LAZARUS HOUSE:A Second Chance At Life


Program Description

               Lazarus House offers a long-term transitional housing in a cooperative living environment. The purpose of the program is to offer an environment in which men, with a priority for men re-entering society after incarceration, may continue to resolve issues which have contributed to homelessness. The length of stay will be determined by the participant’s cooperation with the program. Once admitted to the program, the participant will enter a two-week trial period. If successful during that time-frame, stay will be renewed weekly, based on the commitment to the program goals.

Interview by appointment is required. You can obtain an application by clicking here
