About Clare House
Clare House is a 24-hour emergency shelter open to women with children and expectant mothers over the age of 18. Families at the shelter receive daily meals and moms receive referrals for childcare, substance abuse/mental health, affordable permanent housing, employment and continuing educational opportunities.
Moms and kids are often in compromised situations sleeping in a car or on the street with no where else to go before they find refuge at Clare House.
Case management services are integral to helping women shift from homelessness to independence.
