Lafayette Transitional Housing Center

Address
615 North 18th Street
Lafayette, IN - 47904

LTHC's Homeless Services Program, which is in the Howarth Center, offers three meals a day, laundry facilities, showers and computers. But the staff's primary focus is placing people who are homeless into housing. Caseworkers help clients find jobs, sign up for disability benefits and address any problems preventing them from finding housing.

The center has long offered those services, but until this week, it kept regular business hours. When MHA announced it would close due to funding cuts, LTHC agreed to fill the gap. The center now is open from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. every day.



Office hours: Mondays through Fridays 8am - 6pm.
The Homeless Services Program, which is located at the Howarth Center, offers a variety of services to anyone in our community who is homeless or in a housing crisis. This program is often the first step for anyone in need who is trying to find a solution to their situation.

LTHC provides the central point of entry for all homeless services, including transitional housing shelter for the homeless.

Singles Transitional Housing Program

The Singles Program offers housing and case management to 15 men and 8 women. The housing is in a former nursing home facility, which allows each client their own furnished bedroom, and shared bathrooms and kitchen facilities. The Singles can stay at LTHC for approximately 12 months. Each resident pays rent, which is based on their income and circumstances.

The goal of the Singles Programs is to help the homeless break down the barriers that have led to their homelessness. LTHC has Case Managers who work with each client and are available 24/7. The case managers are to help gain access to appropriate services, developing and implementing short and long-term goals, and to give the clients overall support.

Family Transitional Housing Program

The LTHC Family Program properties and playground. The Family Program offers both housing and case management to approximately 13-15 families at any one time.

Lincoln Center Permanent Supportive Housing Project

The Lincoln Center is located at 814 North 14th Street, Lafayette

The Lincoln Center is located at 814 North 14th Street, Lafayette
The renovations of the Lincoln Center Project were completed in March 2011, and 24 tenants moved into their units on April 1st.

Permanent Housing is a combination of affordable housing with Lincoln Center on-site case management services, that helps people live more stable, productive lives. The Lincoln Center provides a long-term solution for people in our community who are continuously challenged by difficulties. The main goal for the tenants is to remain housed. When a person has their most basic needs of food, clothing and shelter, they can then focus on their long term success.

The Lincoln Center has 24 Project Based Housing Vouchers through the Lafayette Housing Authority. These vouchers, which are provided by HUD, enable tenants with zero income the opportunity to have permanent housing. As the tenants gain income, the Lafayette Housing Authority will adjust their rent accordingly.

This project has taken years to become a reality, but with the help of so many, it is now a permanent solution to ending homelessness for men and women in Tippecanoe County.
