We coordinate with a team of pro bono attorneys to handle legal issues.
We match each woman in our program with a volunteer Friend in Christ to help build a social network of support, encouragement, accountability, and friendship.
We align volunteer mentors with the women in our program to teach parenting and domestic skills.
We partner with local churches to ensure that our residents are engaged in a Christian community.
We help women and children meet educational goals by coordinating with state and local educational institutions
