Real Moms Real Stories
A place of hope and empowerment.
The women who arrive at Gilead House come from diverse and often traumatic backgrounds and experiences. All have been homeless or at-risk of being homeless. Most have experienced domestic violence, job loss, mental illness, or are recovering from substance abuse or other events that have left them vulnerable economically and emotionally with no stable place to live.
They come in need of hope, stability, and a place to heal. They come with an expressed desire to end the path of homelessness they’ve been on and develop the capabilities needed to provide for themselves and their children. Each wants a second chance, and turn to Gilead House for a safe, sober, and stable living and learning environment from which they can learn the skills and access the support needed to better their lives.
Through hard work and the support of a loving community, the moms leave Gilead House with a sense of purpose, improved economic self-sufficiency, and hope for a better future for their family. Best told by them, these are real moms, real stories.
"Families are the compass that guides us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights and our comfort when we occasionally falter."
