Family House - Family Shelter and Services

Largest shelter for families who are homeless in northwest Ohio. Shelter and food provided, as well as intensive, individualized case management and supportive services.

The goal at Family House is to help families in crisis to find permanent housing, to regain control over their lives, and reclaim their independence. Help from Family House is a hand up not a hand out.

Family House admits residents 24 hours a day, whether in an emergency situation – women experiencing domestic abuse; flood, fire or tornado victims, or victims of unemployment or financial burden. We take in families appearing at our door and those from other relief organizations, including Job & Family Services, Lucas County Children Services, Toledo Police or the American Red Cross.

Family House exists to provide shelter, food and basic needs to homeless families, and to lead residents to the appropriate resources for their situation. We pride ourselves on teaching residents and those in need how to get their own needs met.
Are you or do you know a family in crisis? If you are a married couple with or without children; an unmarried couple with children; a same-sex, cohabiting couple with or without children; a single parent; or a single pregnant woman, please call 419-242-5505 to find out more about our programs or to schedule an intake appointment.
We offer a structured program – with restrictions for the safety of all our residents – in a secured, drug/alcohol/weapon-free facility.
To enroll in our program, you need a state-issued photographic ID and a birth certificate for each child, and you must not be a registered sex offender, have an open felony warrant or have been convicted of any crime against children.

    The Family House is one of the best places to work. At Family House there are opportunities to help in more ways than one. The clients at Family House respected the position of the Community Health Worker and a good working relationship with some of the women was formed. In my opinion everyone who valued the FH worked together productively and had positive outcomes. As a Community Health Worker, I faced many challenges, but every challenge was worth the effort and time that was used to help the residents. Not all things went well, but that is expected. I applaud the director and the staff for doing the job that God has given them to do. Everything was not perfect but working together with everyone, clients, staff, directors brought about a sense of greatness. I am thankful that I was able to spend time there as a CHW and I pray that the shelter will continue to grow, financially, physically and spiritually. Truly this shelter is just one of God's blessings in Toledo. Hats off to Family House.
