About Us: Gilead House is located in downtown Novato in beautiful Marin County just north of San Francisco.

We are a small to midsize organization that serves our 12 to 15 families through 100+ volunteers, Board of 8 to 15 members, 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. Our goal is to be the final stop on a mom’s journey to self-sufficiency. In order to accomplish that goal, and to ensure that our moms are best equipped to become successful members of our community, Gilead House’s 24-month program is evolving from simply providing housing and life skills training to now include four “pillars of success”:
