Who We Serve
- Women and children (men can access services delivered)
- Homeless defined broadly as lacking a permanent, safe, secure place to live
- Are in crisis, a veteran, re-entering society, or have experienced traumatic physical and/or emotional abuse by people and/or systems, and
- Are low-income, unemployed or underemployed
Homelessness is about so much more than not having a home. It is about the collision of past and present experiences that defines where one is in life, but it does not determine the final destination. Persons who are homeless face a complicated web of challenges, including traumatic experiences like childhood abuse, domestic violence; health conditions like chronic diseases, physical disabilities, mental illness; systemic issues like poverty, inequality, and the lack of affordable housing, education, job training; and the destructive coping methods that lead to alcoholism, drug addiction, and legal issues. At House of Divine Guidance, we rebuild lives one brick at a time.
