Who We Are
We are a local response to the distressing realities of our nation's growing housing crisis. Our primary goals are: to assist increasing numbers of families headed by single women struggling to attain adequate housing and sustainable employment.
To affirm the rights of these families to the dignity of shelter and gainful livelihoods.
to support their efforts to become financially self-sufficient, confident and contributing members of our collective society.
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. -- Proverbs
What We Do
WHC strongly believes that housing is only the first step to becoming self-sufficient. Our clients have many needs when they come to us. They often need counseling, emotional support, life skills, education, and they need to learn to trust themselves.
We are a "hands-on" organization. Women who choose to live in Coalition Housing are choosing to take a positive step toward improving their lives. Clients are required to be employed or attend school fulltime. They are also required to work on the maintenance and improvement of their homes and to participate in monthly self-development and life skills training meetings.
|Clients meet with staff to evaluate and discuss goals, obstacles, and progress toward self-sufficiency. WHC staff is also a huge resource to our clients as we provide referrals to needed services.
