The Living Room Day Shelter For Women
1207 Cleveland Avenue
Santa Rosa, CA - 95404
Who we serve: Women and children of all ages, races, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religions, and socioeconomic backgrounds experience homelessness for a multitude of reasons. Many of the women we serve have fled domestic violence, resulting in a loss of income or economic support. Substance abuse and mental or physical illness are also causes of homelessness.
Main office (hours: M-F, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.)
Program hours (for guests): Mondays through Fridays 8:30am - 1pm.
The Living Room welcomes homeless and at-risk women and their children into a warm, safe and comfortable environment during the day when overnight shelters are closed. Caring staff and volunteers offer a lifeline during a time of crisis. Whether homeless for some time, newly homeless, or on the verge homelessness, women of all ages and mothers with children are greeted with love and understanding. Mother's appreciate the child-friendly environment where they receive support from staff and volunteers while their children engage with toys and learning activities.
The Living Room's two core programs are the Women's Program and the Mother and Child Program (MAC) offered by a caring staff and hundreds of volunteers, and utilizing an ever expanding network of Community Partners working together.
The Living Room provides nutritious meals and essential daily needs, and offers health care education, parenting skills, job search skills, computer and mail access, and referrals to community resources that provide temporary shelter, housing, medical and mental health care, and other vital services.
