Our House delivers on a promise, and that is to help homeless families and children in need. The organization operates a top-tier Early Childhood Education program. And, Our House helps parents attain a more stable life through job training and a pathway to affordable permanent housing. This is truly a great nonprofit that knows its mission and brings it alive on it every day for people who need these services the most -- people without a home.
