What we do

The Living Room Program is open Monday through Friday
8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

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..  To learn more about our adult Women’s Program and Mother and Child (MAC) Program, please visit our PROGRAMS page. 

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 OUR SUPPORTERS!


The Mission of The Living Room is to ease adversity and promote stability, dignity and self-reliance for women and children who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, in Sonoma County.

 2013 Annual Holiday Luncheon

Santa Tim (The Santa Tim Nonprofit Charity and Tim Oxford Construction, Inc.) was the hero of the day on December 20 at The Living Room.  175 women and children were served a special Holiday lunch planned, prepared and served by Bea Beasley and TLR volunteers and staff. Toys and Xmas stockings were distributed to the kids, and lots of photos were taken with Santa!  It was heart warming!  A ton of planning goes into this event every year to provide a cheerful Holiday experience for the women and children we serve. Also, many thanks to Ame Van Dyke (E.R. Sawyer Jewelers) for helping sponsor this Holiday event exclusively held for our participants.
