This is the reality for many homeless who call Tuscarawas County their "home"...

Reality of Homeless


Welcome to Friends of the Homeless Shelter

Our purpose is to provide a safe comfortable place for those who are experiencing difficult times and need our temporary shelter during their transition to becoming independent. We are located at 211 East High Avenue in New Philadelphia.
Homelessness in our community is a problem. We have people living under bridges, in cars and on the streets with no where to go. At Friends of the Homeless, we provide these people a place to go for shelter, a hot meal and a hot cup of coffee.
