  • Operates transitional homes for families that contribute toward their living expenses

  • Provides comprehensive case management and counseling services

  • Creates a home-like environment for clients, staff and volunteers

  • Embraces the cultural diversity and strengths of all individuals

FROM Surviving TO THRIVing

Stopping the cycle of abuse was one of Marie's main priorities. Growing up in poverty and crisis provided no foundation for stability. After fleeing from domestic violence, Marie became dedicated to healing. Through our Neighbors In Need program, Marie participated in intensive case management, financial counseling and our Sound Minds Mental Health Program. Volunteer support accessed Marie to weekly meals to offset expenses and staff provided 24/7 crisis intervention. Marie received a life-changing opportunity that led to her family moving into an affordable housing unit. This family is now thriving based on the drastic improvement in quality of life and HOME’s trauma-informed approach to helping our families work towards independence.

Wishing our network and community a very
happy new year! 
Thank you for continuing to support the families and mission of home.

Volunteering provides empowerment and is a gateway to connecting with your community. Volunteers play many supportive roles throughout our programming. No gesture is too big or too small to truly make an impact in someone’s life. We value the many volunteers whose contribution to HOME is reflected in the victories of our families as they work towards independence. 

Financial support has been provided in part by Somerset Board of County Commissioners
