The Mission of Holy Cross Services is to bring hope, promote change, and help people live free, healthy, and productive lives.
Our statewide families and children programs include Family-Based Care and Youth Transition; Residential Care and Family Healing; Housing and Community Advocacy.
For decades, the New Hope Community Center (“New Hope”) has been a pillar for people experiencing homelessness in Lansing. At the request of the community, Holy Cross Services assumed operations of the facility in 2018. Today, New Hope is one of the region’s largest homeless shelters and is the area’s only “low-barrier” facility – meaning we eliminate as many barriers as we can to ensure all neighbors have access to emergency shelter.
The New Hope Community Center in Lansing provides:
Community Kitchen – Serves warm breakfast, lunch and dinner for anyone in the community who needs help.
Day Center – Provides a warm, safe space to rest, recharge and access case management.
Emergency Shelter – Overnight shelter for individuals with nowhere to turn.
Family Sheltering – Ensures families with children remain together during an episode of homelessness.
Veterans’ Housing – Shelter and support for veterans experiencing homelessness so they can transition to permanent housing.
Holy Cross Services envision a future where family and home are certainties for everyone.
