The Livermore Homeless Refuge, LHR  was created to provide a warm, safe, clean environment for individual homeless people to stay overnight.  It uses faith based communities as its base to house this segment of our society.  These faith based communities allow us to provide this service to homeless individuals at a minimal cost.  It does not segregate on the basis of race, creed, color, religion or lack of religion.  Its current funding comes from individuals, faith based communities and the general public.  At this time LHR does not induce or attempt to induce anyone to a specific religion.  The Livermore Homeless Refuge season is from November 1, 2015 through April 30, 2016 during inclement weather.

Asbury United Methodist Church - 4743 East Avenue
Vineyard Christian Fellowship - 460 N. Livermore Avenue
1st Presbyterian Church Weekends only - 2020 Fifth St. (Entrance on 4th St.)
Holy Cross Lutheran Church - 1020 Mocho Street

Weather Forecast | If the weather forecast is greater than a 20% chance of rain or the temperature is 40 degrees or less, the refuge will be open (providing we have enough volunteers to staff the Refuge).
