Facing crisis pregnancy, domestic violence, substance abuse, or homelessness?
The Hiding Place provides women with access to community resources, educational support, job-skills training, employment resources, and parenting support.
In these uncertain times, domestic violence and other health needs have greatly increased. The Hiding Place continues to keep its doors open to serve women and their children. Your generous monetary gifts are needed now more than ever.
During the initial months that a young woman begins her journey at the Hiding Place, she will learn to improve her self-image, develop positive habits, and learn useful domestic skills. Each woman will also develop a “Life Plan” that gives a personal account of her dreams and goals. The Life Plan includes written details for how she will accomplish her goals and remain accountable during the process.
During the second phase of the program, the young woman begins researching and pursuing educational and career opportunities with the support of the Hiding Place Director, Home Advocates & Partner Organizations.
During the final phase of the program, each woman receives support with securing employment and housing.
Upon completion of the Buds to Roses Program, the young women are honored with a graduation ceremony. At the ceremony, the women receive a certificate of completion and a special “Buds to Roses” necklace to serve as a reminder of their successful accomplishment.
