House of Hope provides shelter and services at four sites in Lowell, including our main facilities at 812 Merrimack Street and 520 Fletcher Street, a smaller facility on Varnum Avenue, and a co-shelter unit on Salem Street. Although different in size, all four shelters share a commitment to treating families with dignity and respect and an expectation that they will engage our staff and contribute to creating a road map that will resolve their homelessness. Our shelters operate 24 hours a day.

"I thought ending up in a homeless shelter was the worst thing to happen to me, but it turned out to be the best. House of Hope saved me."
