Every family and individual should be able to live in safe, affordable housing.
To provide a progression of supportive services and housing that empowers families to become independent, self-sufficient, and adequately housed. To foster low income housing opportunities to prevent homelessness and encourage safe, affordable housing.
HEARTH is a nonprofit organization
We accomplish our mission through two programs that we operate, Benedictine Place and PRIDE.
At Benedictine Place we provide transitional housing to homeless women with children while they work to become economically self-sufficient. While the “Moms” go to school and obtain marketable skills, the staff at HEARTH provide support through Case Management, donations, volunteer services and connections with community resources. When the women leave Benedictine Place they are able to obtain and maintain employment, financially supporting themselves and their children.
PRIDE is a permanent supportive housing program for women with a mental health or physical disability comprised of scattered site apartments throughout the community. Through this program, women leaving Benedictine Place who are in need of longer term support can continue to receive it while taking additional steps to become independent. These participants are still required to work toward self-sufficiency and financial independence.
A third program HEARTH at Benet Woods, is managed by our other non-profit, Benet Woods Housing Corporation. This program serves working families and individuals through an 11 unit development in Ross Township. Please click here for details.
