Everyone Should Have a HOME

Friendship Home for Women & Children



The Friendship Home for Women & Children opened in 1999 and can shelter up to 41 women and children.

Women are provided a clean, safe and structured environment where they may get back on their feet socially, financially and spiritually.
Our goal is to see our residents return to a productive lifestyle. Sometimes this means giving them a safe place to live while they improve their education or work on a disability claim. Other times, this means providing a place where they are protected from an abusive situation. Most of the time, it means just giving them a place to get back on their feet financially and find affordable housing. We provide Individualized Case Management to all residents and also counseling and Parenting Classes to pregnant women. Additionally, we provide transportation to residents to work assignments and appointments.
