Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Group Homes, Human Services, Mental Health, Mental Health Disorders, Residential Mental Health Treatment, Substance Abuse Prevention

Mission: The mission of The Women''s Home is to help women in crisis regain their self-esteem and dignity, empowering them to return to society as productive, self-sufficient individuals.

Results: In 1957, The Women’s Home started with just a handful of clients. Now, we directly treat and serve more than 200 women annually. As our client’s needs have evolved so has our organization. In 2010, The Women’s Home built and opened the Jane Cizik Garden Place, an 87-unit safe, sober drug-free permanent supportive housing community in Spring Branch (West Houston).

Programs: The Women's Home programs include residential, clinical and vocational care. Treatment is individualized and based on a wellness model that addresses 6 areas of a woman's life: Emotional, social, physical, spiritual, fiscal and vocational.

The Women's Home gives hope and a second chance to women who have no where to turn. Those who work at TWH are dedicated to helping the women in the program regain their confidence and self-esteem to find jobs and get their lives back on track. We should all support this great organization however we can so they can continue to be successful in helping women realize they are not alone and that help is available for them.

There is nothing more valuable than self worth. To have someone believe in you when you can't believe in yourself is priceless. Often it is that mustard seed amount of faith that makes great things happen.

The people who make The Women's Home and all it offers possible to reach those in their time of need are heros in Houston. Not only do they provide resources, structure, and compassion to other ladies, but they are their only place of refuge.

I have been blessed not to have need of TWH personally. But I have been fortunate to hear other women share their story and how TWH was vital to their existence. Every story unique but all share a common thread - TWH. You never know how much of an impact helping one life actually touches many lives.

You can be assured The Women's Home will be wise stewards of this award.
