We're Here to Help

The core reason that BHA exists is families who are experiencing homelessness to gain stability through loving, faith-based, housing and supportive services. The participants in our two-year transitional housing program are all single mothers with children.

These women have worked hard to keep their families together in light of many challenges. They are now diligently tackling life changing goals related to employment, education, finances, parenting, finances, and other life issues.

While our focus is serving women with children, we also have limited program availability for other household compositions through our Side-By-Side program.
