The Peak of Hope Shelter, formerly known as The Logan Homeless Shelter, is a homeless shelter located in Bellefontaine.

The shelter is run by a board of volunteers, and their mission is to empower the residents of Logan County to achieve shelter stability and self-sufficiency by offering a hopeful hand-up to those in crisis without discrimination.

The organization has two homes located in Bellefontaine, one on Mad River Street and one on North Detroit Street, that give people a place to stay as they navigate to their forever homes.
