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. In the new Clare House building, the entire 2nd floor is dedicated to women who are transitioning out of homelessness and striving towards stability.

With the help of generous volunteers and donors Clare House provides meals, services, support and more – 365 days a year. During FY 2020 48,728 meals were served thanks to the generosity of service groups and donors.

During fiscal year 2020, 245 moms and kids stayed a total of 16,496 bed nights at Clare House.

For over 25 years you and your neighbors have stepped up to provide essential contributions in order to serve the women and children at Clare House. Please consider helping again today.
