Our Woman and Children's facility is currently being expanded from 36 to 46 beds. Mom's with kids stay in a private room with their children and we can accommodate for up to 4 children in a room. There is a dormitory style room for individual woman, some needing shelter from domestic violence.
As part of their case management, residents work toward personal goals, including employment, a crucial step to becoming more financially stable and independent so they can move into permanent housing. Without our services, they will be less likely to achieve the life and job readiness skills they need to obtain and sustain employment, or to achieve permanent housing, and would require more services from the community; impacting the availability of services from government, private agencies, and the religious community. Rescue Outreach Missio's Opportunities & Hope program ensures a safer, healthier community for all in addition to providing the potential for a future for our clients.
The Following are specific services that every resident benefits from (some services are provided in collaboration with other agencies).
