Find a solution beyond homeless shelters in Lafayette, Indiana with our Engagement Center.

Our Engagement Center is coming soon to the old Trinity Mission location at 815 N 12th Street!

This program will be LTHC Homeless Services’s first stop for anyone experiencing homelessness in the Greater Lafayette community to receive the supportive housing and services they need.


A History of Ending Homelessness

In June 2014, United Way—along with government leaders from Lafayette, West Lafayette, and Tippecanoe County—asked LTHC to spearhead the effort to alleviate our community’s housing crisis. The result: our vision for the Engagement Center.

We signed an agreement with Trinity Mission in December 2017 to purchase their property. Since then, we’ve applied to the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) for tax credit funding, and we’re constructing the Engagement Center as we speak. In fact, we just broke ground in August 2018!

Our Engagement Center Partners

It takes a community to end homelessness together. That’s why we’re designing our Engagement Center with space for as many other nonprofits as possible so that our guests can have access to the support and resources they need, all in one place.

A variety of programs will be on site either part-time or full-time once the Engagement Center is open. For more information, please contact Executive Director Jennifer Layton.
