About The Life House Women's Shelter
Vision & Mission
To provide help and hope to homeless women in need.
The Life House offers safe shelter, warm meals, access to laundry and shower services, fellowship, and case management.
The Life House Women’s Shelter is a community collaborative that came by way of knowing the need of homeless women and knowing of a vacant home that was underutilized.
In November 2020 when it got so cold and women were coming to Pathways looking for a warm place to go (and there was none), an ask of this home (previously a maternity home) was made. Within 24 hours, the board answered "yes!" This was the first yes of many that have followed from supporters and community partners.
Just a short four weeks later, the doors of the home were opened four days before Christmas. Women were home for the holidays!
Security, stability, and safety is the foundation of the ministry with the framework of love, grace, humility, and hospitality.
“I assure you that when you have done it for one of the least of my brothers and sisters, you have done it to me.”
- Matthew 25:40
