Since opening its doors as an emergency
homeless shelter in 1983, Lazarus House
has been breaking the cycle of poverty from
its base in Lawrence, Massachusetts, one of
the poorest cities in New England. Over the
years our supporters have responded to the
needs of this community. The people served by
Lazarus House live a daily struggle to get their
most basic needs met. Our food and clothing
programs assist families by stretching their
dollars so they can afford rent, heat and utilities.
Housing provides a safe haven for homeless
families and individuals. Our education and
work preparation enable guests to become
self-reliant. Lazarus House continues to be a
beacon of hope in the darkness of poverty.
