The Lynn Shelter Association believes every person deserves a place to call home. Our mission is to provide a safe environment for each individual to define and pursue their goals for independence and self-sufficiency.
We work alongside individuals and families to create a supportive environment- by listening and building relationships- empowering them to define and pursue their goals. We provide shelter, supportive services, housing solutions and access to a continuum of community supports to more than 1,000 individuals and families at risk for and experiencing homelessness each year.
Incorporated in 1984, Lynn Shelter Association (LSA) has developed shelter programs, case-management services and housing opportunities for homeless individuals and families throughout the North Shore of Boston. During our 32 years of taking care of homeless people, our mission has remained focused on providing care, compassion and tools to help our clients open the door to a home of their own. We remain committed to ensuring access to our services and to educating the community about our programs and the impact of homelessness in our society.
Our programs and services are free to our clients. We provide shelter and supportive services to more than 1,000 homeless individuals and families each year. Our Adult Emergency Shelter has 44 beds available year round. During the winter season, when more people seek shelter with us, we offer additional sleeping space on mats.
