Programs that Benefit

The Living Room

For 25 years, The Living Room has been the only center in Sonoma County that specifically serves homeless and at-risk women and their children, providing participants with a place to be during the day when overnight shelters are closed, as well as hot meals, a computer center, daily necessities such as toothbrushes and shampoo and community referrals and on-site counselors. The Mother and Child program provides a safe place for Moms to bring their children and to receive training on parenting. It is a critical place for women who are on the verge of becoming homeless, as well as the first place that many newly homeless turn to for relief and referral guidance.
A majority of the women have suffered from exposure to domestic violence and have experienced either physical or sexual assault. The Living Room provides a supportive place to heal.

More than 900 individual participants are served annually. An average of 70-80 participants receive services every day Monday-Friday. This includes approximately 20-30 children and their mothers who attend the Mother and Child Program. A nourishing breakfast and a hot lunch is prepared and served by our volunteers – about 2,000 meals are served per month.
