Help Us Build Hope
Why We Need to Raise Capital
With the ever-present demands of families and individuals seeking our help and support, Lazarus House must find ways to expand and improve its ability to serve those in need. Today, the Lazarus House Emergency Shelter and Center for Transitional Living occupy the upper stories of 214 Walnut Street, with the Women & Children’s Day Center, Outreach services and administrative offices in separate buildings. In October of 2017, Lazarus House initiated the purchase of the entire building at 214 Walnut Street. This will allow Lazarus House to move all program offerings under one roof, helping us keep families together, and adding much needed space for operational efficiency.
Building for the Future
This newly acquired space will allow us to enrich the services we offer to those in need, who are from the communities around us. You can help us meet these demands by joining us in our capital campaign. We will be seeking broad base support of individuals, companies and foundations across our community in the coming months to help us raise the $1.7 million needed to cover the cost required to complete the purchase and remodeling of the building at 214 Walnut Street.*
