The Hesed House of Hope is a non-profit organization and is currently the only homeless shelter in Lincoln County.  It started in 2008 and rotated between 5 area churches. In 2009 we broke ground on our permanent facility.  The new facility opened in 2012 and served as a wintertime shelter until 2017.


Construction of the current shelter cost $300,000. The funds were raised over a 5 year period and came from individuals, businesses, and grants from the Timken Foundation.  Hesed House of Hope is debt free and all donations go toward staffing the shelter and paying utilities.


In 2017 the Board of Directors made the decision to become a year-round shelter starting on Oct 1st, 2017

We open each day at 5:30 pm and close at 8 am.  For the safety of our staff and residents, we do drug and alcohol testing on all potential residents. We provide temporary shelter for men, women, and children at our facility.

Our mission is to provide temporary housing to allow an individual to regroup and get back on their feet. During the 2016-2017 we had 101 clients. 56 of those stayed two weeks or less, 89 stayed 90 days or less and 94 stayed 120 days or less.

In partnership with DSS and other agencies, we work to help our clients apply for any benefits they may be eligible for, we support the rapid rehousing model and we help residents in their search for employment.
