The FRESH Start Emergency Shelter and Resource Center provides homeless families and individuals the resources and training needed to empower personal sustainability while providing a safe place to sleep and be protected from outside elements. The Resource Center serves as "home-base" for its guests; it is where guests can prepare and cook meals, take showers, wash clothes, and receive the support and training needed to regain independence. Churches and other facilities throughout Lebanon County provide overnight shelter. All referrals should be made by calling 717-272-4400. Any family or individual facing an immediate housing crisis is encouraged to call 717-272-4400 or visit FRESH Start (250 S. 7th Street, Lebanon) to inquire about services.
