A New Home for Healing Campaign

Since 2000, Joseph’s Home has opened its doors to men experiencing homelessness with serious health conditions who had no place else to turn. In 2022, our ministry realized the dream to also serve women by opening Mary’s Home and then becoming Joseph & Mary’s Home.

We now have the opportunity to build a new future for Joseph & Mary’s Home to fully meet the needs of the adults we serve with dignity and high-quality care.

A New Home for Healing campaign will renovate and relocate Joseph’s Home for men to a new space that will be 100% handicapped accessible. And, we will ensure we are meeting these needs long into the future through sustaining support.

Join others in supporting this $2.5 million campaign to open A New Home for Healing in 2025.

The Renovation: Designed to Serve

There is no other organization in Northeast Ohio that provides medical respite for adults experiencing homelessness who are discharged from the hospital who are too sick or vulnerable to stay in a traditional shelter or on the streets. As our population ages and the number of unhoused seniors is projected to triple by 2030, there is an urgent need to renovate a new space for Joseph’s Home to accommodate men with disabilities who would benefit from a single-story building.

Construction will begin in July 2024 to renovate a new space that will maintain capacity to serve 11 men at a time in a modern facility. The relocation and renovation will make us a stronger organization with modern men’s and women’s medical respite facilities located side-by-side in one building with 24/7/365 staff. Amenities include private resident rooms, a medical clinic, kitchen and dining room, community room, and staff offices and meeting spaces to coordinate resident care.

“The data shows our homeless population is aging and has greater physical needs. The new Joseph’s Home will go a long way for better, more private, more accessible spaces that will help people recover and achieve permanent housing.”
— Michael Sering, Vice President of Housing & Shelter, Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry
