Chances are you are reading this in a comfortable spot, perhaps, with the sun shining in over your shoulder. Chances are you’ve never been homeless, slept in your car or forced to live in an unsafe environment. Not all women, or people for that matter, are so lucky, and recognizing this The Women’s Home has taken a step to make it possible for some Houston women to have a safe, affordable place to live. Many will have been residents of The Women’s Home and will have completed the intensive whole life program there that allows them to regain control of their lives, improve their job skills and find employment. For many the missing link has been a home, one they can both be proud of and afford.
With the opening of the Jane Cizik Garden Place Apartments, that has changed. This beautiful 87 unit complex, built mostly with private funding, is dedicated to women and provides a first home for those who are entering the job market at minimal salaries. It is a sober environment that also provides after care counseling that will reenforce the women’s efforts to maintain healthy lifestyles.
