The Problem

"Hidden" Homelessness

Single, mostly middle-aged, women with low-needs are finding themselves housing insecure or homeless despite having formal education or having consistent tenured industrial and corporate work experience. Academic achievement does not necessarily equate to a successful housing trajectory. Women are disproportionately impacted by workplace and income disparities.

Who Are the

"Hidden Homeless"

Though many women experience homelessness, the demographic largely impacted are single, middle-aged women who are generally between 40-60 years of age. Many are likely to be formally educated while some are not. They have maintained a career or job trajectory for most of their lives, and became unemployed due to no fault of their own.  

Many of them have little or no savings, or have exhausted what they did have. Too often, these women mask the "look" of homelessness while trying to regain their footing. Some of them work or worked for billion dollar organizations while others work for large franchises that pay such-low wages that they can't afford quality, safe housing.  They don't have any obvious mental-health, physical, substance abuse, or other disabilities. 
 
These are usually qualifiers, also known as, "high needs," for women seeking supportive housing programs. Unfortunately, single women with low-needs don't qualify for these programs and often fall victim to homelessness. 

Pre-Covid:19 these women were largely unseen. It took a pandemic to shed light on a growing issue that has been largely ignored. But now it's exasperated like all inequalities and disparities that have become exposed and exasperated because of a global pandemic.

But though she has been "hidden" from the larger population...

"I know her experience intimately because I have been among this population. I know her because I was her."

The Vision

Our vision is that every woman that is single, industrious; regardless of her background is offered an opportunity to be housed in a quality, safe, affordable, home and community---able to sustain keeping, singly a home that she loves.
