Housing that Heals

We believe in grace. There are no throwaway people.


Home is so much more than a physical space.

It’s discovering the joy of new beginnings, the hopes of tomorrow, and finding your place to belong in this world.

We see a tremendous need in our community. Together we can address this need, lift those who are struggling and create a community where individuals grow and thrive.

We are uniquely equipped to not only offer shelter, but also offer the support required to stabilize, encourage, and elevate the most vulnerable in our community. Unconditional positive regard for those we serve envelops them in opportunities to heal and experience real peace and hope.
