I was greatly impressed with the dedication and perseverance of the Open Arms team in developing their vision into an amazing permanent housing model for chronically homeless, mentally ill women. There were many challenges to what they were doing, but they made it happen and continue to do an amazing job in keeping a fragile population of women in safe, comfortable, and supportive environments.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their ongoing mission to help serve women who have experienced years of homelessness and, due to their disabilities, could not thrive in standard housing alternatives. The dedication of the volunteer board and staff is exemplary.

This is a non-profit that certainly seems to make the most of every dollar it raises. A dedicated board and staff work closely to identify women with mental illness who can benefit from the supervised living setting they have created especially for this purpose. They've created a warm and friendly home for women who otherwise would be without much if any support or supervision. They provide structure and guidance for women whose lives are turned around by having a stable and safe home to call their own. This is proof that showing respect for and understanding the needs of those with mental illness can go a long way towards addressing the problems of homelessness!

The Great!

My family has developed a deeper understanding of the issues surrounding homelessness and seen the best efforts carried out effectively through Open Arms Housing. Open Arms Housing demonstrates the effectiveness of partnership between people who are homeless and volunteers, non profit leaders,corporate supporters and government agenicies. Open Arms is a great example of the broader community coming together to improve people's lives and to feel good about the hard work.

The Great!

By visiting the open house in the spring at which new residents as well as Open Housing staff and board members proudly gave my family and me a tour and spoke about the benefits of such housing.
