LEOS is Caldwell County's first full service permanent emergency shelter to serve men, women and children, entire families under one roof. We are a program of Caldwell County Yokefellow and are located at 1129 West Avenue, Lenoir, NC 28645
LEOS began in 2010 on the gym floors of Old Lenoir High School as a winter-time shelter. January 7, 2015 we opened the doors to our permanent shelter. This is partnership between City of Lenoir and Caldwell County Yokefellow allows the dream of having a permanent emergency shelter in Caldwell County. We are a place where individuals and families that do not have an adequate place of shelter can come. LEOS provides more than just shelter to our residents, we provide the compassion of a home and case plans to help them get back to living self-sustainable independent lives.
