ENDING HOMELESSNESS FOR GOOD
We believe in Housing First because people like Melody should be able to focus on bettering themselves rather than worrying about where they’re going to sleep next. Instead of worrying about stable housing, Melody has been able to focus on her family and her personal wellness.
With your support, we can continue helping people suffering from homelessness by finding the secure housing they need.

HOME – everyone deserves to live in a place that is permanent, safe, and secure
EMPOWERMENT – creating space and opportunities for personal choice and transformative growth
BELONGING – a sense of community that comes from connections to family, neighbors, and friends
INTEGRITY – everyone who walks through our door is worthy of dignity, respect, and our best efforts
IMPACT – achieving our mission through proven practices and collaborative partnerships

For 20 years I spent my time looking for a place to sleep at night, looking for food, fighting for my health, and fearing for my life. I don’t think people understand what it means to be stable and have a home. It’s my sanctuary, it’s where I feel safe.
