Almost Home isn’t a shelter. It’s a proven pathway out of poverty.
Our comprehensive programs are designed for highly-
motivated young women who are ready to
work for a brighter future.
We meet moms exactly where they are. Our targeted programs give young mothers the tools they need to be successful, no matter where they are on their journey, and stay with them to ensure long-term success.
“It's not a shelter… They help more than a shelter would help you. They motivate you to get where you want to be.”
We’ve designed comprehensive and relevant programs that address the complex needs of young moms in poverty. Our flexible model allows us to customize services for each young mom so we can achieve measurable results. Our 8 years of alumni support ensures their long-term success.

Removing the obstacles that prevent people from escaping poverty today is a much more complicated process than it was in the past. That’s why Almost Home actively partners with other organizations in the community to increase our effectiveness and use resources more efficiently.
