About North Side Housing and Supportive Services
Our mission is to end homelessness in the lives of individuals by providing housing and comprehensive supportive services. We also strive to eradicate the conditions that cause, contribute to and exacerbate homelessness.
In 1983, members of three congregations along with other Lakeview citizens concerned about the issue of homelessness in the Lakeview community started an overnight, emergency shelter located in the lower levels of the Lake View Lutheran Church and Wellington Ave. United Church. The two sites provided a temporary “home” to hundreds of men and women over the years. Later, the agency began to serve only men in the Lakeview Lutheran Church site as a result of cuts in the initial funding.Today, North Side Housing and Supportive Services (NSHSS) is a comprehensive human services agency focusing on ending and preventing homelessness. Because homelessness is a complex issue, NSHSS provides an array of services to our consumers to help our consumers address a wide range of difficult issues and achieve self-sufficiency. Respect and empathy are as important in rebuilding lives as food, housing and supportive service. Dedicated staff and volunteers empower our consumers with skills and motivation.
