Mission Statement:

Lowell Transitional Living Center (LTLC) is a client-centered emergency shelter for homeless adults dedicated to providing housing solutions, meals, and connections to community-based resources and support.  LTLC has been providing shelter and care for 35 years in downtown Lowell.

What we do:

Lowell Transitional Living Center (LTLC) provides the most vulnerable adults in our community with shelter, showers, laundry, and food. Case Managers specialize in housing, financial assistance, and health and wellness. They are here to empower guests and become partners in the journey from homelessness to housing.

The role of a case manager is to adapt individual service plans to meet each person’s needs. This can range from obtaining a form of identification and health insurance all the way to advocating on their behalf to receive fair access to affordable housing. 

Case Managers promote overall stability, emphasizing physical and behavioral health and nutrition. When needed, our case managers work with those in need of drug/alcohol rehabilitation through relationships with local rehabilitation programs, as well as proving transportation.

Our approach matches what people experiencing homelessness want and seek our help to achieve, and it is particularly effective for people who have lost their homes due to a personal crisis.

Housing First is a national model recognized for its success in assisting those who are homeless, due to crisis, achieve independence; saving the system considerable costs.

Our agency owns 12 single occupancy apartments, 55 below market Single Room Occupancy (SRO) units, and 6 units of housing for chronically homeless individuals.

Often times our devoted case managers help people move into new homes by renting moving vans, obtaining furniture, linens, and housewares, and helping them move. Many clients choose to continue their relationships with their case managers to ensure they remain housed and connected to LTLC services and support.

LTLC remains open through the COVID-19 pandemic catering to the basic and case management needs of the homeless population within the Merrimack Valley. We continue to follow social distancing protocols and sanitize our premises for the health and safety of our community, clients and staff. Contact for more information on shelter operations
