The mission of Visitation House is to address the needs and concerns of economically poor women and children.
They offer a two-year transitional housing and education program which provides the opportunity and the means for homeless single mothers and their children to achieve self-sufficiency and independence through its focus on education as foundational to ending the cycles of poverty and homelessness.
“The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word founded Visitation House in 1985 to respond to the needs and concerns of economically poor women and children and named it for the premise on which it operates - The Gospel Story of Mary & Elizabeth- women helping women. It is realized in our two-year Transitional Housing & Education Program for homeless single mothers with young children, and extended into the community-at-large at the Visitation House Women's Learning Center. ”
