I love not being homeless any longer! I have been able to budget. I was able to go to school and get a job. I have been at my job for seven years. I’m also working on being a better role model for my children. l am glad to be a part of a great organization that helps women in need.
I’ve been able to build myself as a woman, mother and person. I am able to manage money, time, family and my job. Sacred Heart House is a great safe haven. I have recommended it to friends who have been in the same situation.
Six mothers and one single woman worked to ensure their long-term self-sufficiency in Sacred Heart House of Denver’s Transitional Housing Program. These women were involved in education programs at Metropolitan State College of Denver, Emily Griffith Technical College, Community College of Denver and Everest College
After residents secure housing, the Follow-Up Program helps them move forward to reintegrate into the community. To assist in re-establishing households, Sacred Heart House of Denver provides furniture and household goods with items donated by members of the community. Of 181 adults in this program who completed evaluations in December 2014, 81% remain in stable housing and 22% have increased their level of education since they left the shelter. Another 17% are currently in educational programs.
