About Gilead House:
Established in 1999, Gilead House provides a stable home environment for low income, vulnerable, and often homeless single mothers and their children. Our 24-month program offers women the opportunity to learn vital skills in a supportive environment so our residents can make permanent changes in their life. The cultivation of self-esteem takes place in a home - not a shelter or institution. It is there where the transformation from homelessness to self-reliance and a future filled with promise takes place.
Each resident brings about changes for herself and her family in a multi-tiered and multi-faceted infrastructure of relationships including a personal mentor, a case manager, life skills teachers, the other families, and a large base of volunteers who help create a learning and loving community. The main components of the program include a strong focus on education, family advocacy, mental health support, and mentoring and personal goal-setting. Through each of these avenues, the residents learn independence and self-sufficiency and make plans for life beyond transitional housing.
Gilead House is only able to change lives because of your support! Thank you for caring.
