Compassion House operates "transitional housing" for low-income families seeking to rise out of their current or past circumstances and achieve self-sufficiency. By state law, a transitional housing facility must limit residency to two years, then the resident must move on. Our units are all 3-bedroom, so we focus on single mothers with two or more children.
Compassion House operates from a Christian philosophy of caring for those in need among us. While we are a faith-based organization, we do not consider spiritual beliefs, gender, age, race, education, or disabilities when working with clients.
In addition to low-cost housing, we provide each resident family with the support required to re-build their life, overcome past troubles and create effective life habits. Our goal is to see emotionally and economically hurting people become healthy again, moving closer to self-sufficiency before they leave in two years.
