Growing forward

Our mission and vision

We believe dignity and value are the keys to helping women move forward. While women and their children are here, they can expect everyone at Clare House to treat them with respect, regardless of who they are or where they came from. We believe in our residents’ success – and we’ll provide the tools and opportunities to make it happen.

 

Clare House transforms the lives of women and their children through an employment-focused program, providing safety, housing, and supportive services with the goal of financial stability.

 

Our vision is a community where all women and their children are empowered to build a stable foundation.
