Our mission is to end homelessness by providing shelter, respite care, work opportunities and other services, so that people have increased opportunities for stabilization, recovery, and permanent housing.

Lake City Taskforce on Homelessness

Since 2005, the Lake City Taskforce on Homelessness has been bringing together advocates, faith communities, agencies, neighbors, and people experiencing homelessness. Lake City Partners was established in 2015 by the Taskforce. Lake City Partners continues to build on the work of the Taskforce as it has been instrumental in forming a neighborhood network of care.

Our Vision

Lake City Partners has an ongoing effort to broaden our outreach in the following areas:

JustHealth Recuperative Care

In 2014-15, we operated a pilot project to gain experience in post-hospitalization healthcare services to people who lack housing and are transitioning out of an acute care hospital. The program offers minimal oversight in an overnight (motel) facility and provides support with follow-up appointments, connections to support services, and housing. We are currently seeking funding to restart this program.

Employment Outreach

Since 2014, a sub-committee has been working to develop a vision for employing folks motivated to work. Current program model includes opening a co-op style cafe and establishing a barista training program. We are currently seeking funding for this project.
