The Lynn Shelter Association believes every person deserves a place to call home. Our mission is to provide a safe environment for each individual to define and pursue their goals for independence and self-sufficiency. We work alongside individuals and families to create a supportive environment- by listening and building relationships- empowering them to define and pursue their goals. We provide shelter, supportive services, housing solutions and access to a continuum of community supports to more than 1,000 individuals and families at risk for and experiencing homelessness each year.
Lynn Shelter Association offers emergency shelter, high quality services and a continuum of care that leads to permanent, sustainable housing as clients transition back into the workforce and independent life. All Lynn Shelter Association clients have access to case management, with referrals to community resources for housing advocacy, benefits maximization, assistance with job and housing searches and other services. On site, we provide mental health assessments and counseling, as well as substance abuse counseling. We facilitate access to detox and treatment of mental and physical illnesses, when indicated, by collaborating with other caring organizations and providers. Our newest initiative - the Enrichment Center - strives to provide all of our clients with experiences and opportunities that will expand their skills/knowledge, nurture self-worth, and enhance social skills - all geared towards maximizing their potential to live, work and participate in their communities.
