The mission of St. Herman House - FOCUS Cleveland is to shelter and support homeless men on the path to well-being and independence and meet the basic needs of people in our community.
St. Herman House was founded in 1977 as an Orthodox Christian monastery with a mission of serving the homeless and poor. In 2013, St. Herman’s became part of FOCUS North America, a national Orthodox Christian 501(c)(3). St. Herman's is no longer a monastery but its original purpose remains the same: serving the homeless and poor.
The St. Panteleimon Ministry brings church services to those who can no longer attend on their own. For many who live in Northeast Ohio senior living communities, our ministry is the only opportunity they have to take part in group prayer services. We welcome all who wish to worship the Holy Trinity in the Orthodox manner.
