TLR Image Program Hours Box JPGThe 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!

TLR Image Trio Celeste JPGA FREE concert performed by Trio Céleste is being hosted by First Presbyterian Church of Santa Rosa.  It will be an exciting program featuring works of Ludwig van Beethoven. Trio Céleste is one of the best young chamber groups around today. Violinist Iryna Krechkovsky, cellist Ross Gasworth, and pianist Kevin Kwan Loucks combine to form an exciting, dynamic and intelligent ensemble. They have what only the best groups have: . . . the ability to play with both power and subtlety, and what can best be described as a spark.  Read a recent great article about them here!

Our elves will meet you “curbside” to accept your donated gifts and cash donations right from your car in our parking lot at 636 Cherry St., Santa Rosa. To sweeten the deal, Santa’s helpers will be serving cookies, cider and candy canes! There is even a rumor that the big guy himself may make an appearance. Hear those sleigh bells? If that is not easy enough, you can stay home and DONATE ONLINE from any page on this site! Stay tuned here and on our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates!
