We Won't Pass You By.
Metanoia Project provides food, clothing, shelter, showers and resources to the homeless men and women of Cleveland.
There are large numbers of homeless men, women and families in Cuyahoga County who will not make use of regular shelters and who seek other avenues of shelter. Among the many who live outside the shelter system are the young (many who have aged out of foster care), the old, victims of domestic violence, those living with mental illnesses, the addicted and those who are just plain afraid to come in.
Homeless people who are shelter resistant frequently end up staying outside in make-shift camps, abandoned buildings and other less than suitable places of refuge.
During the winter, life outside becomes extremely dangerous and often deadly. Frostbite, extreme illness, and other harsh weather problems become a way of life for most.
What We Do
The Metanoia Project is a ministry comprised of people who enter into authentic, mutually transforming relationships with individuals and couples vulnerable to the cycle of homelessness by responding personally and creatively to systemic gaps.
We welcome and gather the homeless men and women of our city (especially the shelter resistant, living under bridges, in alleyways, and on park benches) and provide them with hot meals, showers, clothing, hygiene and overnight hospitality.
