St. Paul's Community Center was established in 1978 to provide food, shelter, support services, and job and housing referrals to the homeless, indigent and mentally ill in the metropolitan Toledo area. Our goal is to provide a period of stabilization for these individuals, the most under-served in our community, and help them obtain the assistance they need to live self-sufficient, satisfying and productive lives.
St. Paul’s has five major programs:
- The Shelter: includes 30 beds for men and 5 beds for women. Residents work with a case-worker towards securing housing, linkage to mental health services, jobs and supportive services.
- The Food Program: serves approximately 53,000 meals per year to individuals in need.
- Winter Crisis: an overnight program during the coldest months of the year, offering a place to sleep, hot showers, warm clothing, dinner and breakfast to homeless individuals (in addition to the 35 shelter beds).
- Outreach Services: Providing outreach services to homeless individuals living on the streets.
- Representative Payee Program: provides budgeting and financial management assistance for more than 600 individuals with mental illness or developmental disabilities.
