We're Humanitri

and we believe homeless and re-entering citizens can stabilize and contribute greatly to the region.
We are a Lutheran ministry working with homeless, incarcerated and re-entering citizens through permanent housing, pastoral care, therapeutic counseling and home-based case management.

Humanitri is a not-for-profit 501c3 organization deeply rooted in Lutheran ministry through the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) and Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

Our Mission

Humanitri, as Christ’s hands of mercy, helps families facing homelessness achieve stability in a safe and supportive community, providing the skills and resources they need to thrive.

Our Approach

We use a Recovery Oriented System of Care to address the behaviors that resulted in homelessness, addiction, abuse and incarceration.

Children and adults need time to address the root causes of their trauma: partner l parental l childhood abuse, early pregnancy, mental and emotional stress, money management/heavy debt, lack of employable skill. We wrap teams of professionals around each client for 18-24 months to establish sustainable life change.

Faith Statement

We carry out our mission with hope, faith, joy and love (Romans 5, I Corinthians 13) as our foundation.

We bring the hope of Christ Jesus to our clients, a hope that endures and will not fade because it is grounded upon His goodness and mercy. We have faith that Christ will work through us and our clients for their well-being. Our work is full of joy for it is done in confidence of Christ’s blessing. Our work is marked by the love of God in Christ who first loved us.

Jesus reached out to and embraced people rejected by others; we are called by Him to do the same. Created by God and redeemed by Christ, our clients have inherent and God-given worth and dignity and thus are worthy of our best. As we are accountable to God for our actions and to our donors for the stewardship of God’s gifts, we instill accountability and responsibility within our clients.  The road is not an easy one.  We expect to see change in our clients, and believe they are capable of achieving stability with our support. We do all of this to break cycles of crisis and instability, to improve the quality of life of our clients, to improve prospects for future generations, and so that they can experience peace and joy.
