Our team includes four passionate women that have all been personally or indirectly affected by homlessness. 

We are sisters, mothers, daughters, wives, Christians, leaders, & advocates. Homelessness won't be eradicated overnight, but we hope that this non-profit will shift the narrative, humanize the stories of homeless women, and plant the seed that may spark a change.
