About Us


To inspire hope and empower homeless single moms and their children toward financial stability and independence.


The Gilead House program provides three practical programs designed to empower women to reach their full potential.


Transitional housing is an integral part of the program providing a place for hope, healing and life-changing transformation.

Gilead House has two campuses:

Seventh Street Center – Seventh Street Center is a residential home that houses up to six families.

Leafwood Center – Leafwood Center is a second-step program with apartment-style living.

The skills received through Life Skills training are empowering. They are the impetus for change and growth. Moms receive training in the following areas:

Personal finance, career development, parenting strategies, relocation opportunities, nutrition and health, and 12-Step programs.

Mentor volunteers are critical to the program. They provide guidance and encourage accountability as the resident pursues the goals necessary to enable her to transition to independent living.
