EUMA ends homelessness in NWPA by making it rare, brief, and one-time, as Jesus would.


We do this through six different programs following a housing first concept and scattered site model.

  • a 32-bed emergency shelter for homeless families with children

  • a 10-bed transitional shelter and program for homeless Veteran men

  • a community effort to provide safe and warm overnight shelter to men and women who are homeless and have nowhere to go during Erie’s winter season

  • helping those in a housing crisis quickly find a home and wrapping them with supportive services to keep them there

  • offering low-income permanent housing units to formerly homeless families, youth and others.

  • a thrift store providing financial support to EUMA programs and offering free clothing and household items to homeless individuals and those in need through a voucher assistance program

  • offering a bridge from foster care to independent living for youth

Our Impact This Year

  • Adults and children sheltered


  • Bed nights provided by Our Neighbors' Place


  • Veterans exiting to permanent housing


  • People rapidly re-housed
