In 1984, a small group of individuals, churches, and the synagogue in Lowndes County, Georgia, formed Lowndes Associated Ministries to People (LAMP) as a clearinghouse that would monitor and steward the

distribution of local assistance dollars.  Over

the years, LAMP has become more than

just a clearinghouse, it is now the 

local mission for the homeless for

Lowndes County and the

surrounding area.

LAMP is funded through

grants and private

donations from the

community.

What We Do

LAMP provides temporary emergency shelter to men, women, and families in Lowndes and surrounding counties. In addition to temporary housings, we provide wrap-around services that include case management and other treatment services.

HOMELESSNESS IS A COMPLICATED ISSUE.  There is no one-size-fits-all solution that works for everyone.  LAMP individually assesses each client's need, then develops a comprehensive approach to address the root causes of that person's homelessness.
