Seeking help at Clare House

On-site programs for our residents take place over the course of up to one year. During that time, residents are provided with the tools and training necessary to help stabilize finances, build savings, and secure sustainable housing. We provide the opportunity to overcome the barriers of poverty and the situations that lead to the possibility of homelessness. And, thanks to our community volunteers, many of the personal supplies our residents require are provided at no cost. 

Please note that our waitlist is currently closed. Please dial 2-1-1 for emergency shelter assistance.
