Who we are looking for:

Gilead House is located in downtown Novato in beautiful Marin County just north of San Francisco. Our 24- month program focuses on providing homeless single moms with the opportunity to access education, housing and mental health services all in an effort to be the last stop on their journey towards stability. The local church community was foundational in the establishment of Gilead House 20 years ago and remains an important part of Gilead House today. We are a small to midsize organization which serves our 12 to 15 families through 100+ volunteers, a Board of 8 to 15 members, a primarily faith-based donor base and staff. Our approach recognizes that any program designed to assist homeless mothers in becoming self-sufficient must be at least as comprehensive as the issues that caused their homelessness in the first place.  As such, our program focuses on a number of learning areas, including financial planning, substance abuse counseling, furthering education, parenting classes, and mental health counseling amongst a host of others.

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lots of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
