Length of stay:
Laura’s Home is primarily an extended stay crisis center. Women must decide within the first 30 days if they would like to sign on for the full program at Laura’s Home. If one decides to stay on past 30 days, they must make a commitment to living and learning at Laura’s Home for our program, which lasts 6 months or more. We also have emergency shelter space during extreme weather or on a case by case basis. Short term stays can last from 1 night up to 30 days. Please call before arriving for long term and emergency space availability.  

Help: To Be Safe and Secure. We provide the basics - meals, bed, shower, laundry, etc.

Heart: To Heal and Renew Hope. Counselors and caseworkers assist with mental health, relationship management, planning for the future, drug/alcohol assessment and referral, and more.

Home: To Move Toward Self-Sufficiency. The City Mission facilitates referrals to transitional and long-term housing, assists with job readiness training and applications, continued mental health treatment, encourages maintaining healthy family relationships, and other programs that allow clients to move forward in a self-sustaining way after they leave our campus.

Pathways Family Outreach Services: The Pathways program aims to positively impact the lives of the children and youth who come through the doors of Laura’s Home by serving Kindergartners through 12th grade students. The program offers several services designed to encourage and support our young guests in a positive, Christ-centered manner. Because of the Pathways, moms at Laura’s Home are able to focus on their own coursework and counseling, knowing that their kids are not just in safe hands, but growing alongside them.
