Description: Provides overnight shelter and supportive services such as meals and social service referrals.

The Samaritan House is the only homeless shelter in Ashtabula County.  Our county residents can stay with us up to 30 days. During that time, the staff connects residents to area agencies that can help them with employment, housing, food, medicine or whatever they need to get back on their feet again.  Transients or non-county residents are limited to a two day stay.

Our shelter serves clients daily with intakes beginning at 4:00 p.m. on a first come, first served basis.  Residents leave during the day to work on goals, obtain services and seek housing. We recently opened the shelter 24/7 with help from grants. Residents can come back through out the day to get ready for interviews, have appointments, and on most days can come back for lunch.  As part of their stay, we provide food, laundry facilities, sleeping areas, bathrooms and television rooms for our residents.

Currently, the shelter has a dedicated staff.  The full-time Director and House Manager work together with the part-time Bookkeeper, 5 Intake Specialists, and a custodian.

Our hours are all day long with intakes starting at 4:00 p.m.
You must have a valid photo ID.
After completing an intake interview and assessment, eligibility is determined for services.
Current Ashtabula County residents are eligible to stay at the shelter for up to 30 nights based upon need and maintaining good status.
Out of county residents, including out of state and transient residents, are eligible to stay at the shelter for a maximum of 2 nights.

Donation Requests by Samaritan House Homeless Shelter: financial donations to help with expenses and the ongoing repairs to our shelter. Monetary donations keep the shelter going and our utility bills paid. It helps with needed supplies that have not been donated and supplemental foods like milk, eggs, bread, meats and fresh fruit and vegetables.

Many of these shelters now have waiting lists. Please call before going to them. Many waiting lists are very long. Shelters and service also go out of business. Always call ahead to confirm that this location is still active. If you find that this location is no longer operating, please send us a comment using the form below.
