LifeHouse’s mission is “enriching lives by providing the path to stability.” We provide that path by meeting individuals and families’ basic needs-food, shelter, and clothing- in Fremont and Dodge county.
Our emergency shelter is a 24-hour a day 60-bed emergency shelter, providing a safe and secure environment for those in need. In addition to a bed, we provide meals, showers, clothing and other hygiene necessities. While meeting these basic needs, we are working to empower individuals and families through their continuum of care. During a program participant’s stay, case managers work closely with the individual and families investing in their future through intensive case management, applying for benefits, assisting with sustainable income and budgeting.
Our food pantry program’s goal is to maintain the health and living situation of those individuals and families in need. This is done by providing seven days of balanced, nutritious food that is reflective of the USDA “My Plate” guidelines. Meats are typically available while fresh garden produce and fruits are available in season.
Our Thrift Store is open to the public for shopping and donating. The revenue raised is used to help fund our programs. Program Participants use vouchers for needed clothes and other household items at no cost to them.
The prevention program provides housing stability to the near homeless and most vulnerable in our community. Our case managers assist individuals and families in creating a budget, securing, improving or maintaining employment, and applying for benefits. This program allows individuals and families to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency and prevent homelessness.
