Located at 1681 E Main Street in Lancaster, the Fairfield County Emergency Shelter serves the homeless community in Fairfield County by offering a secure environment for homeless men and women on an emergency walk-in basis.

The shelter serves up to 24 individuals (16 men and 8 women) each night.
Under the operation of Lutheran Social Services, Fairfield County Emergency Shelter also offers the following services for families and individuals to move from homelessness to self sufficiency: case management, budgeting, planning, goal setting and any other requirements that would help individuals/families become self-sufficient.
