About us

The mission of the Lawrence Community Shelter is to provide safe shelter and comprehensive services and programs that provide a path to a positive future for people experiencing homelessness and are at risk for homelessness.

The Lawrence Community Shelter is the only emergency homeless shelter serving Lawrence and Douglas County in Kansas. From the first day a guest comes to the Lawrence Community Shelter (LCS), they begin participating in many activities to address the core issues causing their homelessness or risk of becoming homeless. Each guest is engaged by caring, informed people concerned with meetiing their specific needs and offering a partnership to develop a plan to find solutions. These solutions may include employment, counseling, locating a home, or entering a recovery program for substance abuse and/or mental illness treatment. Night shelter guests are provided a secure environment and a sense of community, and referral to crisis assistance or day shelter programs.
