The Living Room welcomes homeless and at-risk women and their children into a warm and safe 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 while their children engage with toys and learning activities.

The Living Room provides nutritious meals and essential daily needs, health care education, parenting skills, job search skills, computer and mail access. We also provide referrals to community resources for  temporary shelter, housing, medical and mental health care, and many other vital services.  While the homeless numbers grow, we strive to meet some of their needs - made possible primarily through private, business, and in-kind donations.

February 7, 2015 - Rotary Club of Santa Rosa West held its annual Crab Feast and part of the event benefited The Living Room!  This phenominal organization had a paddle raise at the event that resulted in $24,000 for us. THANK YOU to The Rotary Club and everyone who raised their paddle.  It's a great start toward the commercial kitchen project being planned for our newly purchased property that will become our new HOME BASE later this year!
