This transitional housing campus is for single women and children who are experiencing homelessness. Also provides supportive housing for senior women in the Sequoia Lodge.
Hope Gardens helps women transition from homelessness to independence within 12 to 36 months by offering long-term rehabilitation programs, services, and spiritual care.
Women and children have a safe place to live while they receive counseling, training, encouragement, and the real help they need to escape homelessness forever.
