An emergency bridge housing program for women and their children under 11 years old who would otherwise be homeless. Petra House provides a place of peace and safety while promoting education as a pathway out of poverty. Serving 3 families and up to 12 people at a time.

The WE Program collaborates with families that have children up to 8 years old to provide person-centered and strengths-based case management, mentoring, educational workshops, and tangible assistance for basic needs.  In the WE Program, families stabilize while decreasing their stress and increasing their support systems.  Serving 40 families and 100 people a year. 

In Community Care we alleviate suffering, cultivate community and foster individual/family stabilization and growth to assist individuals and families to make their way out of poverty.  Starting with the basic needs of clothing and refuge from the elements in our FREE BOUTIQUE and DROP IN CENTER to housing assistance and personal growth in COMMUNITY CARE and the CLASSES we offer.  In Community Care we serve approximately 400 people a year. 

The Zone is all about Just Kids.  We teach academics, mindfulness, emotional regulation, and a restorative justice approach to conflict while partnering with parents to advocate for their children in the education system.

The Zone also includes a summer camp, a full-service Back to School program and a specialized program for 4 and 5 year olds. We are serving 42 children in The Zone.
