Supportive Housing

Group Living Home

In our seven-bedroom Bonnie Hamilton Home, young mothers share a safe base from which to pursue education and employment, enhance parenting skills, and seek longer-term affordable housing. Each mother and child has a bed and a crib in her own room, with shared meals prepared each night. Case managers work with residents to create individualized goals, and work with each family’s unique needs and strengths.

Mountain Home Apartments

Located directly above the offices of case managers, therapists, employment specialists, and the Mountain Home Community Center, the five Mountain Home Apartments are ideally situated to provide support for homeless young mothers and their children. While each resident has her own small kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living area, the shared hallway, communal laundry, and outdoor playground provide opportunities to enjoy the company of other young families. If you or someone you know are interested in the Mountain Home Apartments, please call 211 and ask to speak to an operator about your housing situation.
