Who We Are
A dedicated group of individuals with decades of combined experience working with individuals and families experiencing homelessness, housing instability, mental health crises, and struggles with substance use. Our Staff and Board Members have accomplished backgrounds in Peer Support, Recovery Coaching, Community Health Work, Case Management, Independent Living Skills Training, Religious Ministry, Medicine, Nursing, Business Management, and the Law. We have come together to create radically re-visioned supportive housing opportunities that not only meet the basic needs of the people we serve but truly provide them with a foundation on which they can build a life worth living.
Our Mission and Vision
Our Mission is to create and foster strong community by providing a foundation to empower unsheltered individuals to cultivate resilience, elevate their personal dignity, and find their own life worth living.
We envision a community where…..
Anyone in need has access to shelter or housing
Self-determination is fostered and restored
All community members are active, aware, and engaged
Everyone is afforded equitable access to opportunity
All members of the community are part of the solution
Everyone celebrates the dignity and worth of their neighbors
