In 2005, LMM began administering the Men's Shelter at 2100 Lakeside Avenue. The shelter serves up to 350 men per night with an additional 30-60 beds available at partner overflow sites. Social service partners provide on and off-site services to increase resident self-sufficiency. The staff offers hope while providing support for men in transition and in crisis. Six shelter communities address men's individual journeys: Entry, Decision, Transformation, Work, Partnership, Service.

The majority of shelter funding is provided by Cuyahoga County, City of Cleveland, Veterans' Administration, FEMA and HUD. Individuals, churches, organizations and businesses provide financial and in-kind support.

When you request or received services from Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry 2100 Lakeside Men’s Emergency Shelter, we collect information about you and your household and enter it into a computer program called ServicePoint.  This program helps us to understand homelessness, to improve service delivery to the homeless, and to evaluate the effectiveness of services provided to the homeless.  ServicePoint is used by over a hundred social service agencies throughout the state that provide services to homeless and low-income persons.
