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 is one of the most successful programs of its kind in the nation. Its goal is to help women get back on their feet, whether they have been sidelined by drugs or psychosocial illness. They learn skills to find jobs, and they learn how to trust and grow into productive citizens. The staff is wonderful! I volunteer and support TWH because it is full of people who don't need to be "seen" or impress each other. They just want to work to make the world a better place.

The Women's Home helps women get back on their feet - it offers an emotional home, life structure, vocational education, and a hope for the future. It is not an easy program, but it is a successful one. I have loved helping when I can.

I have been involved as a supporter in The Women's Home for about 10 years, The appeal is that their system of responsibility and nuturing successfully works. No government beauracy holds back a deserving candidate. It only takes committment and the Staff provides the needs. The success rate is astonishing. Not only in numbers but within each woman that goes through the program. I salute the dedicated Staff and each woman that enters the program. Both work, hearts blend and success is attained. The numbers may be small but the outcome is huge. This is a program that should be emulated in every town in the country.

When you think no one cares and you feel alone, The Women's Home gives you hope. Women who suffer from abuse, who feel they have no choice and are worthless, need such a place to help them get back on their feet. All organizations that help others less fortunate are admirable. However, the path to self sufficiency that The Women's Home provides its residents is exceptional. By providing a safe and supporting environment for a woman to once again believe in herself and and gain self esteem and the confidence required to face and overcome the challenges that life presents.

The Women's Home is the best!!! They provide exception services to women who are homeless, victims of domestic violence, alcohol/drug abuse, and/or need comprehensive services to improve their lives. Their WholeLife Treatment Model is one of the most successful programs of its kind. We are lucky to have The Women's Home in Houston. Thanks for each and every employee for the hard work they do, every day, to change the lives of women.
