Housing & Shelter


Men’s Shelter at 2100 Lakeside

LMM’s Men’s Shelter at 2100 Lakeside is the largest shelter in the state of Ohio, serving up to 365 men per night with an additional 30-60 beds available at partner overflow sites. At the shelter, LMM staff and social service partners provide on and off-site services to increase resident self-sufficiency. We work with individuals to end their homelessness by finding appropriate housing as soon as possible. The shelter has six communities to meet the specific needs of those men in crisis. There is also a Work Experience Program to help residents obtain job training and get back on their feet. There are three community gardens, a Neighborhood Partnership Program, and more.


Receive Shelter

Cuyahoga County’s shelter intake is managed by FrontLine Service and is located at 1736 Superior, on the 2nd floor in the Bishop Cosgrove building. If you are homeless and need shelter, their Coordinated Intake and Assessment office is the first step. It is open from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you are a single, adult male and need shelter outside of those hours, you can come directly to 2100 Lakeside for shelter and go to the Coordinated Intake and Assessment office when they re-open. No appointment is needed at either location.


  • UPDATE (3/20/20): The Coordinated Intake and Assessment system for persons experiencing homelessness will continue to be utilized, temporarily operating now solely by phone at 216-674-6700. Coordinated Intake is still available from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. by phone Monday through Friday.

Portraits of Homelessness

The Portraits of Homelessness collection has been showing throughout the Greater Cleveland area since 2010, including Cleveland’s City Hall. Full funding for the exhibit was provided by The Dominion Foundation and Community West Foundation. To learn more about the Portraits of Homelessness project, visit the website.
