Holy Cross had to tweak some of the ways we currently were doing business in our facility due to the pandemic to keep everyone healthy and safe. But most services have remained the same or increased.

HCS Emergency Programs:

  • Overnight Shelter
    • Due to CDC and HUD recommendations to change congregate group settings, it did affect the number of people coming into the overnight shelter some, but we did extend hours and days of operation to 7 days a week, 24/7.
  • Day Shelter
  • Remains open to shelter clients just with slightly shortened hours.
  • Veterans Housing Program
    • Due to COVID, we have experienced a temporary decrease in Veterans coming into the building and staying, but we still are serving those who do come.
  • Community Kitchen
    • we continue to provide meals for those visiting the Day Shelter, yet they are temporarily carryout meals.

Permanent Housing Programs:

  • HCS is actively working with other partners on Prevention Programs and the Coronavirus Relief Fund Eviction Diversion Program.
  • Rapid Rehousing Programs (RRH)
    • HCS now operates 3 RRH programs targeting families, individuals, and persons with substance use disorder.
      • The programs provide case management and rental assistance from 6 to 24 month.

New Hope Behavioral Health Clinic:

  • Is fully operational with the ability to provide mental health and substance use services.
  • Ingham County Health Department is coordinating medically assisted treatment services.
  • Transitions, a transitional housing and Rapid Rehousing program targeting persons with substance use disorders, has been added to services.

Who does Homeless No More Help?

Just a few success stories….

“I had no expectations when I came here. I’m very grateful for what you’re doing for me. You gave me a clean bed, shower where available, and clean towels. You fed me when I was hungry and three meals a day and washers for doing my laundry. When I became homeless, I was hungry. I had nowhere to go and I slept in my car for 10 days. I was having health problems with my legs. My church helped me with a motel for two nights. Then I was told about you and came here to stay.”

The Henry family, a married couple with two children ages 2 and 3 months old, was in our Holy Cross hotel program originally. The family was referred to Rapid Re-Housing for Families program and moved into housing on August 26, 2020. Less than one month later, the case manager received communication from the landlord stating the apartment was not in good condition and that they were calling Child Protective Services. The Holy Cross team negotiated with the landlord to allow them to assess the situation first. The team visited the family who was overwhelmed by many challenges. They were able to assist them to work out a plan to get the unit back in order, provide food assistance and other resources. The landlord is happy, the family is much more stable and CPS intervention was not required. The family continues to work with their case manager and has been referred to other vital community services.

A gentleman and veteran who participated in our Veterans Program is a fantastic artist and created some artwork for staff. He has been successfully housed and employed!


Chair, Homeless No More Host Committee and HCS Lansing Committee

As many of you know, Kevin McGraw was the past Chairman for many, many years, and this is my first year taking over and while it’s been a crazy, unpredictable year, I am still really excited for this opportunity. I have seen how many lives this event has helped over the last 10 years and I’m hoping this year will be no different!

I know times have been tough for many, yet if I know our community as well as I think I do, we always come together to help those in such hard times and I really believe we will do the same for this 10th Annual Homeless No More. I personally want to thank you for your continued support if you have been with us over the years, and thank you to those who are just getting to know all the happens at the New Hope Community Center.

Please stay well and we will work through this year into 2021 the best way we know how, and with hopes for a wonderful Homeless No More event in March!

Thank you!
John Pence
