Clare House provides services that address the basic needs of clients entering the emergency shelter program. This includes safe, warm shelter, food, water and other necessities for both moms and their children. While families are transitioning out of survival mode, Clare House offers 24-hour support and case management services to help guide families to permanent stability. This program provides our clients with stability, consistency and a positive support system, which works hand in hand in building trust and self-esteem.

Moms and kids are often in compromised situations sleeping in a car or on the street with no where else to go before they find refuge at Clare House.

Case management services are integral to helping women shift from homelessness to permanent stability.

CSS remains committed to serving our community, and the health of our clients, volunteers, and staff is our top priority. Learn more and stay up-to-date by reading our response to COVID-19.
