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.

THANK YOU to all our guests who attended The Living Room's first annual HOME BASE fundraiser luncheon held at St. Rose Parish Center on Thursday, May 14th! It was a tremendous turnout of invited guests who came to hear about TLR's current services and plans to move to our newly purchased property in the fall. At the new location, more services will be possible including showers and laundry facilities! The success of this fundraiser was beyond our expectations for a first time event of this kind! We are grateful for every donation, whether large or small! A huge step has been taken toward a brighter future for The Living Room and the homeless woman and children we serve.   See photos of the event on our Facebook page!
