The Living Room welcomes homeless and at-risk women and their children into a warm, safe and comfortable environment during the day when overnight shelters are closed.  Caring staff and volunteers offer a lifeline during a time of crisis.  Whether homeless for some time, newly homeless, or on the verge homelessness, women of all ages and mothers with children are greeted with love and understanding.  Mother's appreciate the child-friendly environment where they receive support from staff and volunteers while their children engage with toys and learning activities.

The Living Room provides nutritious meals and essential daily needs, and offers health care education, parenting skills, job search skills, computer and mail access, and referrals to community resources that provide temporary shelter, housing, medical and mental health care, and other vital services.

While the homeless numbers grow, we strive to meet some of the needs of the women and children we serve - made possible through private and business donations, inkind donations, and grants. Thank you to all our supporters!
