Out of a fear of being unable to protect and safeguard our guests and volunteers, the LHR 2020-2021 Season has been canceled. This decision has been carefully weighed against the dangers of being outside during inclement weather. Therefore, LHR remains committed to its mission to offer a safe, warm, and dry place for the night. We will do everything in our power to help find temporary shelter for our unsheltered guests.

WHO WE ARE
A Distinct Identity
The Livermore Homeless Refuge (LHR) was created to provide a warm, safe, clean environment for the homeless to stay overnight. LHR does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or religion.
LHR's current funding comes from individuals, faith-based communities, and the general public. At this time LHR does not receive funding from local, county, state or federal government sources.
The Refuge serves residents of Livermore, Pleasanton, and Dublin. Please consult your local community resources to find social services in your area.
WHAT WE DO
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Homeless Outreach is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact.
At Livermore Homeless Refuge, we partner with local churches to provide a clean, dry, warm and safe refuge for people who need a place to stay. We provide dinner and breakfast, a sleeping mat, and a sleeping bag. The Refuge opens when the weather is forecasted to be at 45 degrees or less or there is a 20% chance of rain or greater.
With this initiative, our goal is two-fold: 1)to promote great opportunities for people to move toward self-sufficiency; and 2) to promote great opportunities for people to serve those in need. We believe that part of what unites a community is the capacity to see the humanity in one another.
