Our organization have been struggling to open the Carl Gordon House which is a transitional home for non violent ex-offender women. These women are in need of help getting the skills and assistance required to be a productive citizens in their community. The Carl Gordon House will offer them every necessary tool. This transitional house will help women to have self worth and confidence to face the world by teaching them how to be productive.
In Richmond there is such a vast need for transitional homes for women. Before these women are released from prison they must have a home plan, most of them are forced to go back to the community where they got in trouble because of a lack of transitional housing in this area. We desire to help them get a second chance.

Our home is in need of major renovations in order to receive a certificate of occupancy. We have worked hard in attempt to raise funds to open our house. We are in need of funds and skilled laborers to help us open our transitional house.
The board of directors and friends of the board are wonderful caring people who are committed to the vision of helping women.
If you can help us in any way, please feel free to contact us at 804-276-1249.
