At any given time 15 women call The Dwelling Place home. Each woman gets personalized care, support, and guidance to help her build a sustainable, self-supported life. The staff offers a range of services to fulfill each woman’s individual needs while nurturing her unique talents.
Please note women must be at least 30 years old to be considered.

Services include:

  • physical and mental health assessment of each new resident
  • a place to call her own including a bed, nightstand, and closet
  • daily breakfast, takeout lunch, dinner, and an evening snack
  • individual guidance offered by an assigned case manager
  • visits twice a month from the Project Renewal Outreach Team for psychiatric and medical evaluations and medications, if necessary
  • referrals for professional counseling and day treatment programs
  • money management
  • medication management
  • an environment of love and respect

We also serve a weekly dinner on Wednesday evenings, (5:30pm – 6:30pm) to former residents now placed in permanent housing, elderly neighbors living on fixed income and women who are living on the streets. The conversation often includes a sharing of life experiences that encourage women in different phases of their journeys. Holiday meals are also served on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
