When women enter our shelter, they are truly in crisis mode.
Who We Serve
"Homeless" is not who you think…
An evidence-based model based on three pillars:
A Safe Haven & Real Work Experience
Healing & Hope
Most shelters only allow women to stay for six weeks. Because they are forced to leave, 85% go back to their abuser; because their only other option is homelessness. Our unique services are designed for women and children who are temporarily homeless due to a crisis situation.
Employment Readiness Program
We help clients to assess their work environment and adapt and enhance their workplace skills to make them more employable. Through personalized consultations and tailored strategies, our program helps clients to recognize their unique strengths and weaknesses within their work settings, enabling them to achieve their career goals.
Retail 101 Program
We provide hands-on experience at the Mary and Martha House Fashion & Home Goods store through 5 training modules; customer service, merchandising, store display, cash handling and store operations. This immersive training not only equips individuals with practical skills but also instills an understanding of the of the retail industry, preparing them for successful outcomes.
