CSS Clare House

The fastest growing homeless segment in our nation is women with young children. Women who find themselves homeless are in crisis. Their primary concern is finding food, shelter and clothing for themselves and their children. Clare House is trying to break the cycle of poverty by offering life skills classes to residents. Women staying at Clare House learn budgeting skills & employment readiness.
