Fund Details

The goal of the Lawrence Winter Shelter (LWS) is to provide a safe, warm, peaceful space for people without housing to stay over night this winter. With the Lawrence Community Shelter at capacity, the LWS will open on nights the temperatures are below freezing. The LWS is separate from the First United Methodist church, but we are so grateful they have graciously made space in their church for this project. The LWS is open from 8:00pm to 7:00am. FUMC is located at the corner of 10th and Vermont Street downtown. If you are interested in learning more about this project, like our Facebook page: @Lawrencewintershelter or email
